“American Psycho”, based on the novel of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, is coming to Broadway on Wednesday, April 7 with preview performances starting in March.
After selling-out performances in London, the play has now made the trans-atlantic journey to run on Broadway.
The book, which was also turned into the 2000 feature film, tells the story of a young, hip banker who succumbs to his bloodthirsty urges and starts committing murder all over New York City in the ’80s.
Benjamin Walker will star as Patrick Bateman, originally portrayed by Christian Bale in the film. The play’s music and lyrics were written by Duncan Sheik from “Spring Awakening”, Robert Aguirre-Sacasa from “Looking” and “Glee” wrote the book. Rupert Goold from “King Charles III” directs the musical with choreography by Lynne Page from “La Cage Aux Folles.”
