The musical Thrill Me centers on Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, who became infamous in the 1920s for committing what they believed was the perfect crime.  The duo's story, told through Leopold's 1958 parole hearing, focuses on the their passion for carrying out the crime, the murder of a 14-year-old in 1920s Chicago, and their passion for each other.

J.R. Stuart directed Thrill Me, which Stephen Dolginoff created.

Following Thrill Me, Pandora will present 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche.  That production will open in June.
