Brett Easton Ellis’s infamous American Psycho was deemed unfilmable until Mary Harron and Guinevere Turner did such a great job with Christian Bale in the titular role. But what about a musical version?
With a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and music and lyrics composed by Duncan Sheik the musical captures the wicked gallows humour and biting social commentary of Ellis’s controversial book.
Following in the footsteps of Dr Who’s Matt Smith, star Ben Gerrard will remind you of Bale’s performance, but he takes it to a whole different level with the required singing.
The BB-Arts & Two Doors Production has a mixture of original and classics of the period will keep you humming along as you contemplate what’s real and what’s plan horrific.
