  • Favorite Act One Finale?  Jan 11 2017, 11:11:52 PM

    American Psycho had a brilliant act 1 (Hip to be Square) with the pretty brutal but brilliant staging of Bateman killing Paul Owen with the axe

    They aren't releasing performance rights yet as they are not done with it yet. 

     

    And aaaaaa15 maybe we just remember differently but I remember lots of people talking about this show, not just theatrical press either before he was announced. The show would have easily sold out its run without him, they just wouldn't have sold out at the speed they did.

    People who don't live here don't seem to realise that before Smith was announced it was already getting talked about and had many intrigued and excited. 

  • American Psycho  Jan 1 2017, 04:19:31 PM

    NY1 have picked it as one of the top shows of 2016 as well.

    It's happening

    It didn't transfer because they were hoping the original lead would transfer with it but scheduling didn't allow. The step was always looking towards Broadway (hence Ben's involvement for so long). Also I know one of the producers and it was made clear on a FB post today that the show will be back. 

     

    Again, Broadway is not the end, def not anymore.

    God you are a bundle of misery ain't you? You forget it was a hit here. Just because it didn't find an audience on Broadway it doesn't mean it just stops. This migh shock you (brace yourself) but other places exist outside of America, like whole other countries (I know, crazy).

    I'm pretty sure this will be heading to London and I personally can't wait.

    Yeah I wish we had a Broadway Cast recording as well.

    it's nice to see American Psycho popping up on end of year lists for one of the top musicals of 2016. It deserved far more love. Hopefully rumours are true and it will come back to the UK.

    nudity on broadway  Dec 24 2016, 10:30:53 PM

    Not on Broadway but my play Porno Chic that's won some awards here in the U.K and will be heading Off Broadway next year has quite a bit of topless nudity for some female characters and full frontal nudity for male lead.

    Ben Walker in American Psycho. It's one of the worst snubs in Tony history.

    ukpuppetboy said: ""Not exactly an out of town tryout, but American Psycho was a hit in the West End and flopped on Broadway this past summer."

    American Psycho in London played a very limited (but sold out run) in a well respected north London producing venue with a loyal fan base and membership. The short run was pretty much sold out before it opened so I'd say it's very debatable that it can be quantified 'a hit' and it is not tru

    I don't hate his reviews, he's certainly less bitchy than Brantley which is good. People might not ageee with all of his reviews but it's still just a singular persons opinion. Honestly it's Brantley I can't stand,  he reminds me of Green, great writing but very dismissive of so much.

    NYT - pretty positive
