Exclusive Photo Coverage: Inside the AMERICAN PSYCHO Gypsy Robe Ceremony!

Patrick Bateman has officially arrived! Just last week, the company of American Psycho took their first bows at the Schoenfeld Theatre. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the whole evening, starting with the sacred Gypsy Robe ceremony. Below, check out photos of gypsy robe recipient Alex Michael Stoll with the company!

The Gypsy Robe began in 1950, when Bill Bradley, in the chorus of GENTLEMEN PREFER BLONDES, borrowed a dressing gown from Chorus member Florence Baum and sent it to a friend in CALL ME MADAM on opening night Oct 12, 1950 saying it was worn by all the Ziegfeld beauties and would "bless" the show. A cabbage rose from Ethel Merman's gown was added and the robe was passed along to next Broadway musical on opening night. The tradition evolved so that the robe is now presented to the "gypsy" who has performed the most Broadway musicals on a chorus contract. Along the way, the robe is decorated, painted, patched, stitched, and signed by everyone in the show, becoming a fanciful patchwork for an entire Broadway season.

Stoll's Broadway credits include: West Side Story, Evita, Spiderman, If/Then. Other Theatre: Colossal (Young Mike) Kennedy Center Rolling World premiere at DTC. TV/Film: A Million Ways to Die In The West, "Gossip Girl," "Smash," Oscars, Kennedy Center Honors. Love to my family and Jeff.
