Never the Sinner

By John Logan

Directed by Cara Peterson

Some people would die for love...others would KILL for it. "Never the Sinner" is the true-crime story of Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb: geniuses, Jews, and lovers. These teenage boys from Chicago planned the Perfect Murder - and nearly got away with it. Written by John Logan - who penned the screenplays for "Gladiator," "Any Given Sunday," and "The Aviator" - this play explores the minds (and hearts) of two of the most notorious criminals in American history.
