Matt Smith Takes a Stab at 'American Psycho' Musical - NYTimes.com

An actor gives up the lead role he has played for nearly four years and the next thing you know, he’s turned to murder. Matt Smith, who has traveled time and space on the science-fiction TV series “Doctor Who,” is putting down his sonic screwdriver and picking up some sharper, Earth-made implements to play the bloodthirsty Patrick Bateman in a London stage musical adaptation of “American Psycho,” its press representatives said on Monday.

The “American Psycho” musical, adapted from the controversial Bret Easton Ellis novel about a mentally unbalanced young professional, will be presented at Almeida Theater from Dec. 3 through Jan. 25. It features a score by Duncan Sheik, the Tony Award-winning composer of “Spring Awakening,” and a book by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who has also written for “Glee” and contributed to the Broadway musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.” (Mr. Ellis’s novel was adapted as a 2000 film starring Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman.)
