Based on the true story of infamous thrill killers Leopold & Loeb, the show stars West End regulars George Maguire (Oliver, Fame) as Richard Loeb and Jye Frasca (Jersey Boys, Wicked, Mary Poppins) as Nathan Leopold.

The story that inspired Alfred Hitchcock’s 1948 thriller Rope, sees two wealthy college kids in 1920s Chicago who are obsessed with crime and love, make a pact in blood that sets off a murderous series of events and ‘thrill’ killings.

The show, which is directed by Guy Retallack – husband of Wicked star Rachel Tucker – won an ASCAP Music Award for the New York production in 2005 and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Musical and Best Music Score and for an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off‐Broadway Musical.

    AMAZING!! Go see it. Very captivating. Jye Frasca and George Maguire are truly great in this piece. The reviews have been great and they are already nominated for off west end awards.
