Doctor Who’s Matt Smith takes the lead in American Psycho the musical
The story of a psychopathic killer, with high-end obsessive needs, is coming to the london stage. The musical will be based on the 1991 novel, written by Bret Easton Ellis, which was made into a cult-classic film starring Christian Bale.
It was confirmed earlier today that leading that musical will be the former Doctor himself, Matt Smith. Fans should be excited to see Smith acting once again, the actor left Doctor Who last year, though he will return for the much publicized Thanksgiving Special.
Directing this new project will be Rupert Goold and the musical is set to open at London’s beautiful Almeida Theatre on December 12, 2013. Also popular from the early 1990’s was Duncan Sheik, now a Tony Award-winning songwriter (best known for his work in “Spring Awakening”) with playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who also was part of TV series “Glee” and “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” on Broadway.
