Off Broadway’s Second Stage Replaces ‘American Psycho’ with ‘Between Riverside and Crazy’

Second Stage Theater, the Off Broadway company that found itself with a hole in its season when its scheduled production of musical “American Psycho” was yanked by commercial producers, has tapped Stephen Adly Guirgis’ much-lauded new play, “Between Riverside and Crazy,” to fill in the gap.

The show premiered earlier this year at the Atlantic Theater, where it earned raves and logged strong sales. Director Austin Pendleton returns to restage the show with the original cast, led by Stephen McKinley Henderson. Given the strong response, a future life for the play seemed likely; a London production is also said to be a possibility.

The play centers on an ex-cop (Henderson) and his fight to hang on to one of the last rent-stabilized apartments on Manhattan’s tony Riverside Drive.

Producers of “American Psycho,” meanwhile, have been exploring the possibility of bringing the tuner direct to Broadway.

“Between Riverside and Crazy” will begin previews at Second Stage Jan. 16 ahead of a Feb. 11 opening.
