American Psycho opened on Broadway at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre April 21, 2016. The musical, based on Bret Easton Ellis’ novel, played 27 previews and 54 performances before closing April 21, 2016. The production would go earn to earn two Tony Award nominations, for Best Lighting Design and Best Scenic Design of a Musical.
With music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik and book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, American Psycho tells the story of Patrick Bateman, a man living the high life in '80s Manhattan with looks, money, style, and status. But privately, Patrick indulges in another kind of transgression. And people—including those closest to him—keep disappearing.
