American Psycho - 2016 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

$69-$148

26-year-old Patrick Bateman is sophisticated, rich and devastatingly handsome. He's got a sculpted body, a model-gorgeous girlfriend, a to-die-for apartment, and a Wall Street job in 1980s New York City. In short, his life's killer. There's just one snag in this dark vision of the American Dream... Patrick can't get the blood out of his $5000 suits.

Based on the best-selling novel by Bret Easton Ellis, and set in the epicenter of excess: 1980s Manhattan, this hit 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...

Running Time:

Two hours and 42 minutes, with one intermission

Featured Reviews For American Psycho


‘American Psycho: The Musical’ Review: Serial-Killer Chic - Wall Street Journal
"American Psycho" is slick, sleek and empty, a one-joke show that drowns its message, such as it is, in red sauce and fake emotion...The book sticks fairly faithfully to Mr. Ellis's original ground plan. Es Devlin's projection-intensive minimalist sets are 100% white, silver and gray, and Duncan Sheik, lately of "Spring Awakening," has written a score consisting almost exclusively of faux-'80s techno-pop songs with parodistic lyrics...Mr. Walker, who was memorably charismatic in "Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson," plays Bateman as a ripped hipster with a plummy radio-announcer voice, which is just right. Ms. Damiano is good, too-you'll actually feel for her character's plight, unlikely as it may sound-and everybody else in the cast does just what they're supposed to do, which usually means being as irritating as possible. Some of Mr. Sheik's songs are quite harmonically fresh...

Theater Review: 'American Psycho' - Bergen Record
With its stark black and white design, projections, flashing lights and pounding music, "American Psycho" is insistently modish, and Goold, who staged a memorably headlong production of "Macbeth" with Patrick Stewart several years ago, is certainly a dynamic director. But while heartless flash might be the perfect style for depicting the empty '80s, it doesn't make for a very fulfilling 2 1/2 hours in the theater.

The synth-laden opening strains of Concord Music Group's AMERICAN PSYCHO (Original London Cast Recording) are appropriately dark and sterile. In crafting the score for the musical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel by the same title, Duncan Sheik has created a Broadway score that purposefully reminds listeners of synth-pop music by the likes of Giorgio Moroder while mixing in updated technologies to ensure that the score is as crisp and pulsating as any track on Daft Punk's RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES. The end result is an album filled with addictive looping and backbeats that masterfully mixes throwback modalities with modern technology to create an unexpectedly electronic musical score.
