Power. Privilege. Psychopathy. Meet Patrick Bateman, the man with it all. The Wall Street job, the raging ego and, of course, the secret serial murders.

"I'm into, oh, murders and executions, mostly. It depends." - Patrick Bateman

Wall Street, 1987. Patrick Bateman and his inner circle of Manhattan’s elite are top of the food chain. They keep the high life rolling from meetings to restaurants to drug-fuelled clubs with Rolexes at the ready, business cards within reach, and bloody mayhem that’s about to boil over. Step into his office as this pitch black comedy enters the deranged world of an original psycho killer.

Based on the controversial best-selling novel and chilling film adaptation, see the cult-classic come to life as a musical thriller. From premiering in London (starring Doctor Who’s Matt Smith) to Broadway in New York, this award-winning musical is now coming on a spree to Melbourne.

Biting commentary and razor sharp wit reflect a society where image is everything, capitalism and competition reign supreme, and killer fashion is the ultimate currency. With a Walkman-worthy soundtrack featuring 80s hits like 'In the Air Tonight', and 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World', this subversive and satirical pop culture experience might just leave you breathless.

Directed by Alexander Berlage and starring Ben Gerrard as Bateman, an award winning cast and creative team return following a sold out season at the Hayes Theatre, Sydney that won nine Sydney Theatre Awards.

This winter, it’s time to revel in your dark side with American Psycho – The Musical.
