Here are some visually appealing photos from the AMERICAN PSYCHO musical which just began its run in the UK. The show features Matt Smith (Dr. Who) as homicidal yuppie Patrick Bateman; it is of course based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis. The book is by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (CARRIE) with music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik.
Living 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.AMERICAN PSYCHO runs until January 25th in London; find tickets HERE if you're able to attend!
