Evil Dead. The Fly. The Human Centipede. The Shining. What do all of these horror movies have in common? They've all been turned into musicals over the years, and American Psycho is the latest to make the transition to the stage!
Previews of American Psycho: The Musical kicked off in London on December 3rd, and the show features none other than Matt 'Doctor Who' Smith as lead character Patrick Bateman. Featuring music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik, the Rupert Goold-directed 'musical thriller' is based on Bret Easton Ellis' 1991 novel, which of course centers around Bateman - a clean cut investment banker who enjoys listening to music, comparing business cards and occasionally slaughtering co-workers and anyone else whose blood he just can't resist playing around in.
Official opening night is December 12th, and the musical is set to run through February 1st of next year. Learn more and purchase tickets over on the Almeida Theatre's website, and look below for the first images from the adaptation, courtesy of Cult Box!
