“Way Too Far” – Thrill Me

Music and Lyrics: Stephen Dolginoff

Steve Brodie claimed to have jumped from the Brooklyn Bridge and survived on this day in 1886.  Truth or not, either way he went too far, just as Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, the real-life killers of a young boy whose relationship is detailed in this musical.  Supposedly the crime they committed was all for thrills, but Nathan expresses his apprehension in this alluring number and how it conflicted with his desire for his partner.
