And Now… American Psycho: The Musical!

American Psycho seems awfully popular again all of a sudden, and if you’re a fan, then you may be interested to hear this: a musical based on the book is set to debut in London this December. Quite how Bret Easton Ellis brutal satire will translate to the stage remains to be seen, but we’ll be fascinated to find out. And never fear, it’ll be coming to the USA eventually — as per the Guardian, “The team behind the American Psycho musical said they wanted to try out the production in London first, rather than taking it straight to Broadway.” Interestingly, it seems that the music and lyrics will be original, rather than drawing heavily on Huey Lewis and the News — they’ll be written by composer and songwriter Duncan Sheik.
