He’s got a sculpted body, a model-gorgeous girlfriend and a to-die-for apartment. There’s just one snag: Patrick can’t get the blood out of his $5000 suits, because he also has a murderous, psychopathic alter ego that he hides from his friends and co-workers. The novel was adopted into an acclaimed film in 2000 starring Christian Bale and Reese Witherspoon.The show premiered at London’s Almeida Theatre in December 2013 and had been set to make its U.S. premiere at Second Stage off-Broadway in February 2015.
