Musical of 'American Psycho' to debut in London

By

NEW YORK (AP) — A musical based on Bret Easton Ellis's novel "American Psycho" will first try to slay an audience in London.

The Headlong theater company said Friday it will stage the world premiere, which features songs by Tony Award-winner Duncan Sheik, at the Almeida Theatre this winter. Rupert Goold will direct.

Sheik, is best known for his 1996 debut single "Barely Breathing" and and is the songwriter of "Spring Awakening." He's teamed up with playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who worked on HBO's "Big Love," Fox's "Glee" and the Broadway production of "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark."

The 1991 novel — later made into a 2000 movie starring Christian Bale — chronicles a homicidal New York yuppie who is obsessed with high-end clothes and beauty products as he slashes his way through Manhattan.
