Love the theatre and have worked as a singer and dancer for years inc shows like a chorus line,fame,,Tick Tick Boom,Evita etc I now own and run a successful production company in Manchester called Vertigo and have had several hits including Dog Sees God (UK premiere), 3sum (original play) the Breakfast Club, 'M', 'Rage and our award nominated original play 'OUT!' Recently we had the great honour of producing the UK Premiere Productios of Charles Busch Off Broadway camp masterpieces 'Die, Mommie, Die!' and 'Psycho Beach Party'. Both shows were huge hits and sold out. Our original comedy Christmas Sorority Massacre has had 2 productions and we were granted permission to adapt the BAFTA nominated film EXAM to the stage and the play opened to rave reviews. Our original thriller M won Best Fringe Production at the 3MT awards, Mysterious Skin was nominated at the Broadway World UK awards. The original drama Watching Goldfish Suffocate was a huge hit touring the UK and Porno Chic recently opened to rave reviews and will be in 2015
Theatregoer3 I agree 100 percent about solid the American Psycho adaptation was. It sure as hell is one original exciting unique and daring musicals in years.. I also agree that it was crazy to see the way Hamilton and Psycho book ended the season, to go from hope to horror just like the political climate.
So strange to read some negatives, this show got raves here in the U.K and picked up countless awards and nominations. If they haven't changed much it confuses me as to how it could be 'bad'? Maybe it's just very different tastes (UK/US)
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.
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.
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).
