"The chiseled Benjamin Walker takes us on a riveting journey of existential ennui that bleeds into violence before bottoming out in anguish."

David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

My Name Is Patrick bateman...

Revamped after a sell out run in London with Doctor Who star Matt Smith, American Psycho is coming back to its heartland, this time with an all-American cast! And that's not all, the stylish synth-pop scored murderous musical has undergone a few more changes, with new songs, and lashings of more horror and suspense. Stepping into Matt Smith's blood-soaked shoes as Patrick Bateman is Benjamin Walker (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson).

Based on Brett Easton Ellis' 1991 novel and the film of the same name, American Psycho's transformation to ironic musical spectacular was the idea of the playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. A strange concept for a musical you might think, a yuppie whose life is built on shallow consumerism and violent, diabolical acts, but American Psycho is a slick, funny and clever show that illustrates our fascination with capitalism and how it can devalue the few real things in life.

1980's Manhattan: What is American Psycho about?

On the outside, Patrick Bateman looks like he has it all; money, designer clothes, a great job and a beautiful girlfriend. But the handsome young Wall Street yuppie feels numb to everything, with emotion a language he can't understand.

As such, he feels no remorse when committing murder in a variety of gruesome ways. But it becomes increasingly obviously that even his serial killing antics might not help him reclaim reality...

WHAT WE SAY

​American Psycho The Musical: A Bloody Good Time

Award winning composer Duncan Sheik delivers a clever mix of classic 80's tunes and original music to narrate the homicidal tale. Everything from the set and costumes to the lighting and sound was stylized, colorful, synthesized, and robotic. Like one gia more »
