Historique du musical

Génèse du musical

American Psycho began previews on 3 December 2013, at the Almeida Theatre, London, before holding its official opening night on 12 December, with booking initially until 25 January, but later extended by a week to 1 February 2014, when it closed. The show has a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik and is directed by Rupert Goold, with choreography by Lynne Page, set design by Es Devlin, lighting design by Jon Clark, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, video by Finn Ross, musical direction by David Shrubsole and sound by Paul Arditti. Tickets for the world premiere production sold out. Notable casting for the show included Matt Smith as Patrick Bateman, Susannah Fielding as Evelyn Williams, Jonathan Bailey as Tim Price, Ben Aldridge as Paul Owen and Lucie Jones as Victoria. A typical London performance runs 2hrs 40mins, including one interval of 20 mins.

Following its premiere production a workshop of the musical was held in January 2015, in New York City. On 23 July 2015, it was announced that the musical would open on Broadway on 21 March 2016, following previews from 19 February at a yet unknown Shubert theater. Lead casting will include Benjamin Walker in the lead role of Patrick Bateman [26] reprising his role from the 2011 workshop. On 30 September 2015, it was announced that the musical would open at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, and would begin previews over a month later than originally planned, on 24 March 2016. On November 9th, 2015, it was announced that Tony Award winner Alice Ripley will join the cast as Patrick Bateman's mother and Mrs. Wolfe, along with Tony Award nominee Jennifer Damiano as Jean, and Helene Yorke as Evelyn Williams. Damiano previously worked with Shiek in the original production of Spring Awakening on Broadway, as well as with co-starring opposite Ripley as Mother and Daughter in the original production of Next to Normal.
