REVIEWS

Who wants to see a Broadway musical about a serial killer? If the perennial popularity of Sweeney Todd is any indication, a lot of people. However, American Psycho is not your grandma's serial-killer musical. With a score by Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark), this distinctively modern show offers an uncomfortable mix of hilarity and horror. Based on the novel by Bret Easton Ellis, it is now making its Broadway debut at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. Under the masterfully precise direction of Rupert Goold, this roller-coaster ride for the stage will have you peering over your shoulder at the well-dressed patrons behind you.

-----TheaterMania
4 1/2 STARS (out of 5)

Based on Bret Easton Ellis’ controversial 1991 book, the story follows Patrick Bateman, a Wall Streeter and mass murderer, through the excess of ’80s New York. A white box set and video projections evoke the minimalism and garish glare of the era. Author Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (“Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark”) and composer-lyricist Duncan Sheik (a Tony winner for “Spring Awakening”) are mostly faithful to the novel. But they heighten the ironic humor and lessen the graphic violence of both the book and the Christian Bale film.

------New York Daily News
And as for the violence — it’s simply part of the story, usually a joke, and often part of a stunning stage picture. All that red blood looks spectacular against Es Devlin’s stark white set. Have we become so desensitized, in a post-Dexter, American Horror Story age, that multiple on-stage murders elicit nary a cringe? Or are we that certain that everything we’re seeing is happening in Patrick’s head?
Again, it’s up to you to decide.
