Soon to leave the world of Doctor Who behind, the square-jawed former Timelord Matt Smith will lead London’s West End musical adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis’ American Psycho. He takes the role of suave investment banker-turned-axe-weilding nut job Patrick Bateman, previously played by Christian Bale in Mary Harron’s controversial big-screen adaptation of Ellis’ eighties excess novel.
American Psycho will launch in London’s West End Almeida Theatre in December, running from the 3rd December to 25th January next year. Artistic Director, Rupert Goold, will direct the adaptation that already has a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik. Other cast members joining Smith include Ben Aldridge, Charlie Anson, Jonathan Bailey, Katie Brayben, Cassandra Compton, Holly Dale Spencer, Susannah Fielding, Simon Gregor, Holly James, Lucie Jones, Tom Kay, Gillian Kirkpatrick, Eugene McCoy and Hugh Skinner.
