Let's say you find yourself in NYC some time during June. You're looking for a taste of home, and you don't mind your show tunes mixed with murder. Well, the York Theatre Company's production of Thrill Me could be just the ticket. It tells the tale of Leopold and Loeb as, remarkably enough, a musical! Although Neil Genzlinger of the Times finds nothing especially new here, still, he says, the show "lands like a well-placed punch, arresting and a bit breathtaking." Which, in this case, at least, is a good thing.
