Directed by Rupert Goold, the new musical is scheduled to begin previews later than previously announced, on March 26, 2016, instead of February 19, at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Opening night has not yet been set, although it will need to be before April 26 to make the production eligible for the 2016 Tony Awards. Further casting will be announced later.American Psycho features music and lyrics by Tony and Grammy winner Duncan Sheik and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, the tuner follows 26-year-old Patrick Bateman (Walker): a sophisticated, rich and devastatingly handsome Wall Street banker in 1980s New York City. 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.last_img read more
