The Almeida’s acclaimed production of American Psycho A New Musical Thriller starring Matt Smith is rumoured to be coming to the West End.
The much-rumoured West End transfer of the Almeida Theatre’s sensational world-premiere production of American Psycho, based on Bret Easton Ellis’ cult novel, is hopefully edging nearer to the West End.
The cast may be lead by Matt Smith (Doctor Who), reviving his role as New York yuppie and psychopath Patrick Bateman.
The musical thriller has a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and is directed by Almeida artistic director Rupert Goold.
From the Almeida Theatre production:
“Pure, decadent pleasure… will delight even those who think that they don’t like musicals.” The Times
“Bleakly funny and superbly staged… the most stylish production of the year” Sunday Express
“This stunning high-concept musical… is one of the most original in recent years: creepy, beautiful, reverberative, hollow, sleek and disturbing.” Whatsonstage
