Author Bret Easton Ellis and More Revel in Broadway's Sexy New Take on American Psycho

Benjamin Walker stars as king of the antiheroes, Patrick Bateman.

In Duncan Sheik and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa's new musical version of American Psycho, Benjamin Walker leads the company as Patrick Bateman, a 1980s banker who leads a secret double life as a serial killer. Relishing the world Bret Easton Ellis created in his original novel of the same name, the show is filled with '80s sexiness and, of course, lots of blood. Hear what the cast, crew, and even Ellis himself have to say about this unlikely reworking of the gory tale.
