American Psycho, A New Musical Thriller based on Brett Easton Ellis book, December 3 – January 25th, 2014

The front page of the Wall Street Herald newspaper with the headline American Psycho. The page has been slashed with a knife and there are drops of blood on the page.

There is an idea of a Patrick Bateman, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me, only an entity, something illusory, and though I can hide my cold gaze and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable: I simply am not there.” American Psycho, Bret Easton Ellis

From the AlmeidaLiving the high life in 1980s Manhattan, Patrick Bateman has it all – looks, money, style and status. He and his entourage buy the most expensive designer clothes, eat at the most exclusive restaurants and party at the hottest clubs. But privately, Patrick indulges in another kind of transgression. And people – including those closest to him – keep disappearing.

Rupert Goold directs this musical adaptation, from the composer of Spring Awakening, which casts Patrick Bateman centre stage as an anti-hero for our time.”
