‘American Psycho’ Musical, Starring Benjamin Walker, Nabs Broadway Theater

The musical adaptation of “American Psycho,” starring Benjamin Walker as murderous protagonist Patrick Bateman, has locked in its Broadway home, nabbing the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater for a run that begins previews in March.

The production will move into the venue following the limited run of Al Pacino in “China Doll,” which, like “American Psycho,” is produced by Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel, teaming on the project with David Johnson and Jesse Singer of Act 4 Entertainment.

Walker (“Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter”), whose upcoming movie credits include Ron Howard’s December release “In The Heart of the Sea,” makes a return to Broadway in “Psycho” after his breakout stage role in “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson,” as well as his most recent Broadway outing, the 2013 revival of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” with Scarlett Johansson.

“American Psycho” also marks the second Broadway project this season for composer-lyricist Duncan Sheik, whose Tony winning “Spring Awakening” recently opened in a well-received revival. On “Psycho,” he collaborates with book writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Glee,” “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”), as well as director Rupert Goold and choreographer Lynne Page.

“American Psycho” premiered in London in 2013 with Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”) in the title role. The Broadway incarnation of the musical begins previews at the Schoenfeld March 24, with an exact opening date, sometime in April, still to be hammered out.

“American Psycho” joins a lineup of new musicals this season that so far is looking sparse in the spring — “Tuck Everlasting” also opens in April — but is crowded with some heavyweight competition in the summer and fall, including “Hamilton,” “On Your Feet!” and “School of Rock.”
