The hotly anticipated musical, American Psycho, opened at the Almeida last night and received fantastic reviews. Directed by Rupert Goold and starring Matt Smith, it brings Bret Easton Ellis’ iconic novel to life.  The production is enhanced by some stunning video projection designed by our Olivier Award winning Finn Ross.

“One of the most original in recent years: creepy, beautiful, reverberative, hollow, sleek and disturbing.” Michael Coveney, *****

“..diabolically slick production.” Paul Taylor, The Independent ****
