Photo Coverage: Benjamin Walker, Alice Ripley and the AMERICAN PSYCHO Company Celebrate a Bloody Awesome Opening Night

AMERICAN PSYCHO, which began previews on March 24th, just celebrated its Opening Night on Broadway last night, April 21, 2016, at the Gerald SchoenfeldTheatre (236 West 45th Street). The American premiere of a new musical based on the iconic novel by Bret Easton Ellis, which recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of its publication, stars Benjamin Walker (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) as Patrick Bateman. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the special night and you can check out photos from the after party below!

AMERICAN PSYCHO has music, lyrics and orchestrations by Tony and Grammy Award-winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening), and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa ("Supergirl," "Looking," "Glee"). Directed by Olivier Award-winner Rupert Goold (King Charles III), AMERICAN PSYCHO has choreography by Tony Award-nominee Lynne Page (La Cage Aux Folles).

Following a highly acclaimed, sold-out London run, AMERICAN PSYCHO comes home to the city that inspired it. Based on the best-selling novel by Bret Easton Ellis, and set in the epicenter of excess: 1980s Manhattan, the musical tells the story of Patrick Bateman, a young and handsome Wall Street banker with impeccable taste and unquenchable desires. Patrick and his elite group of friends spend their days in chic restaurants, exclusive clubs and designer labels. But at night, Patrick takes part in a darker indulgence, and his mask of sanity is starting to slip...
