American Psycho

Date: 29 Mar 2019

Based on Brett Easton Ellis’ sensational novel, American Psycho tells the story of Patrick Bateman, a young, handsome and wealthy investment banker living in Manhattan during the Wall Street boom of the late 1980s.

With impeccable taste and unquenchable desires, Patrick, our unreliable narrator, and his elite group of friends spend their days in designer labels in chic restaurants and exclusive clubs. But at night, Patrick takes part in a darker indulgence, and his glamorous facade of sanity starts to slip …

With a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale) and music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and featuring classic 80s hits from Phil Collins, Tears for Fears, New Order and Huey Lewis and the News, American Psycho is a pitch black comedy about what it means to be alive in the world we live in.

Ben Gerrard stars as Bateman. Shannon Dooley, Erin Clare, Blake Appelqvist, Loren Hunter, Amy Hack, Daniel Raso, Julian Kuo, Liam Nunan and Kristina McNamara also feature in a production directed by Alexander Berlage (Cry-Baby).
