“Doctor Who” Vet Will Play Patrick Bateman In London “American Psycho” Musical

Published

Matt Smith, who has traveled time and space on the science-fiction TV series “Doctor Who,” is putting down his sonic screwdriver and picking up some sharper, earth-made implements to play the bloodthirsty Patrick Bateman in a London stage musical adaptation of “American Psycho,” its press representatives said Monday to the New York Times.

The “American Psycho” musical, adapted from the controversial Bret Easton Ellis novel about a mentally unbalanced young professional, will be presented at London’s Almeida Theater from Dec. 3 through Jan. 25. It features a score by Duncan Sheik, the Tony Award-winning composer of “Spring Awakening,” and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who has also written for “Glee” and contributed to the Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”

Lionsgate is also developing a television series based on the film adaptation from 2000, which starred Christian Bale as Bateman.
