Never the Sinner

When 14-year-old Bobby Franks was kidnapped from his wealthy Chicago neighborhood and murdered in nearby Hammond, Indiana, evidence quickly pointed toward two suspects: Nathan Leopold, Jr. and Richard Loeb. The men—in their late teens, affluent, and exceptionally intelligent—and their case—soon dubbed “The Trial of the Century”—drew considerable attention, both for the whys of the crime and for the impassioned speech their lawyer Clarence Darrow delivered on the ills of capital punishment. In John Logan’s critically acclaimed play, Leopold and Loeb’s multifaceted relationship takes literal center stage, painting an unnerving portrait of twisted intellect and unflinching devotion.

Logan culled his Off-Broadway hit from newspaper accounts of the true-life story, the mixture of biography and theatricality earning rave reviews since the play debuted in 1988. The Associated Press called it “brilliant, powerful, and cinematic” and Newhouse Newspapers heralded it as “a taut, compelling, psycho-sexual waltz,” with The New York Times simply declaring it to be “remarkable.”
