American Psycho's Many Faces

American Psycho The Musical

American Psycho, the musical, now on Broadway. Book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik, and directed by Rupert Goold.

Lyricist: Duncan Sheik
Characters: Patrick Bateman, Luis Carruthers
It's a pretty apt moment for the resurrection of Patrick Bateman: avatar of Reagan-era American arrogance and Eighties Wall Street excess, avid Donald Trump fan, and (debatably) dabbler in serial killing. The antihero of Bret Easton Ellis's 1991 novel — an acidic satire on American capitalism — would probably feel entirely at home in today's New York. What's less clear is whether he belongs on Broadway.
