Visually striking and psychologically compelling, John Logan’s verbose play, Never the Sinner, gives the notorious Leopold and Loeb trial a sexy spin. For those unfamiliar with the 1920s case, the young, well-off lovers murdered a boy simple to prove their superiority. Michael Solomon (the “angel-faced” Loeb) and Jason Bowcutt (the intellectual Leopold) make the remorseless killers hard to hate. And Robert Hogan conjures up the wry spirit of their wily lawyer, Clarence Darrow. B+
