Leopold and Loeb revisited


October 09, 1997|By J. Wynn Rousuck

"Never the Sinner," a play by John Logan about the 1924 Leopold and Loeb trial, opens tomorrow at the Rep Stage's Theatre Outback, the professional theater in residence at Howard Community College. A co-production with Signature Theatre in Arlington, Va., "Never the Sinner" is based, in part, on transcripts from the trial of the two wealthy Chicagoans who murdered a 14-year-old boy.

Under Ethan McSweeney's direction, Jason Patrick Bowcutt and Michael Solomon star as the 19-year-old murderers, Nathan Leopold Jr. and Richard Loeb, and James J. Lawless plays their attorney, Clarence Darrow.

"Never the Sinner" will be performed in the Theatre Outback at Howard Community College, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2: 30 p.m. and 7: 30 p.m. Sundays, through Oct. 26. Tickets are $13 and $16, and availability is limited. Call 410-772-4900.
