American Psycho - The Musical

7:30pm to 9:30pm Friday 10 May 2019 (Daily event)

Based on the novel American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, which also inspired the 2000 film starring Christian Bale, this bold new musical will have its Australian Premiere at the Hayes Theatre Co from May 2019.

American Psycho - The Musical tells the story of Patrick Bateman, a young, handsome and wealthy investment banker living in the epicentre of excess, Manhattan, NYC, during the Wall Street boom of the late 1980s. With impeccable taste and unquenchable desires, Patrick, your 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 - The Musical is a pitch black comedy about what it means to be alive in the world you live in.
