A new musical thriller
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.
Rupert Goold directs this musical adaptation, from the composer of Spring Awakening, which casts Patrick Bateman centre stage as an anti-hero for our time.
Headlong, the Almeida Theatre and Act 4 Entertainment bring Bret Easton Ellis’s iconic novel to Broadway, its satirical commentary on capitalism resonating as strongly now as it did two decades ago.
A co-production with the Almeida Theatre in association with David Johnson and Jesse Singer for Act 4 Entertainment by special arrangement with Edward R. Pressman.
