The production had set design by Es Devlin, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, with choreography by Lynne Page, lighting by Jon Clark, musical direction from David Shrubsole, sound by Paul Arditti and video by Finn Ross.

American Psycho is an Almeida Theatre and Headlong co-production in association with David Johnson and Jesse Singer for Act 4 Entertainment by special arrangement with Edward R Pressman.

According to the Almeida, "Wildly controversial on publication, 'American Psycho' is now acknowledged as one of the great literary satires. In the narcissistic yuppie psychopath Patrick Bateman, writer Bret Easton Ellis created one of the most iconic antiheroes of the 20th century."
