American Psycho will be presented on Broadway by Act 4 Entertainment (David Johnson & Jesse Singer), Jeffrey Richards, and Jerry Frankel in cooperation with Edward R. Pressman. Bret Easton Ellis' 1991 novel was previously adapted for the screen in 2000, starring Christian Bale. 

The London premiere of the musical featured BAFTA Award-nominated "Doctor Who" star Matt Smith as serial killer Patrick Bateman. Read London reviews of American Psycho here.

Here's how the musical is billed: "Living the high life in 1980s Manhattan, Patrick Bateman has it all – looks, money, style and status.  He and his entourage buy the most expensive designer clothes, eat at the most exclusive restaurants and party at the hottest clubs.  But privately, Patrick indulges in another kind of transgression. And people –– including those closest to him –– keep disappearing."

The London premiere of American Psycho was a co-production of Almeida Theatre and Headlong in association with David Johnson and Jesse Singer for Act 4 Entertainment by special arrangement with Edward R Pressman.
