About the event

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

Meet Patrick Bateman, the man with it all; the Wall Street job, the raging ego and, of course, the secret serial murders. Step into his office as this pitch black comedy enters the deranged world of an original psycho killer.

On Wall Street in 1987, 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. A cult classic, based on a chilling novel and film, comes to life as a musical thriller in American Psycho. 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', do not miss this subversive and satirical pop culture experience that might just leave you breathless.

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