Cancel the reservations at Dorsia. Get your best raincoats on. And while you're at it, ditch Luis (he's a fucking loser, anyway). Because an American Psycho musical production is coming to Sydney. One we can only assume will be rich with Huey Lewis, Phil Collins, and Chris de Burgh numbers.
The latest adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' controversial, transgressive, and genre-defining novel will be given a slightly softer touch this time around. At least enough of a soft touch to make it deemed acceptable within the confines of an establishment as esteemed as the Sydney Opera House.
This upcoming run also marks the production's second season, having undertaken a bloody season on Broadway as well as on the West End, and even making an appearance at the Potts Point's Hayes Theatre Company just last year. All of which, it's worth noting, to considerable acclaim.
American Psycho - The Musical is directed by Alexander Berlage, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, with music and lyrics by the Tony Award-winning Duncan Sheik. You can catch the ever-talented Ben Gerrard's rendition of Patrick Bateman at the Sydney Opera House's Playhouse from June the 4th to June the 21st of this year.
Pre-sale tickets are now available with general sale kicking off this Friday (February the 7th). Find out more at sydneyoperahouse.com.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have some videotapes I need to return...
