ABOUT THE SHOW

Living the high life in 1980s Manhattan, Patrick Bateman has it all – looks, money, style and status. He and his entourage buy the most expensive designer clothes, eat at the most exclusive restaurants, and party at the hottest clubs. But privately, Patrick indulges in another kind of transgression. And people - including those closest to him - keep disappearing. Benjamin Walker stars in this new musical based on the best-selling novel by Bret Easton Ellis.

Trivia

  • This is one of two shows with music by Duncan Sheik to appear on Broadway this season. The other was the revival of Spring Awakening.
  • The original novel is widely considered controversial, and in several countries can only be sold shrink-wrapped.

History

The musical received its world premiere at London's Almeida Theatre in 2013. It is based on the 1991 novel of the same title by Bret Easton Ellis. The book also inspired a 2000 film starring Christian Bale.
