Matt Smith Goes Psycho — ‘American Psycho’

What is former DOCTOR WHO star Matt Smith up to now? He is once again indulging his apparent love of playing crazy murderers by following up the Hollywood movie How To Catch a Monster with a London stage production of American Psycho, a musical based on Brett Easton Ellis’ satirical novel.

The blackhearted book was turned into a 2000 film starring Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) as Patrick Bateman, a 1980s businessman obsessed with the material trappings of success — and no qualms about murdering anyone who doesn’t meet his high personal standards.

The novel was adapted by Roberto Aguirre Sacasa (GLEE), with music and lyrics by Duncan Sheik. It is directed by Rupert Goold and running at London’s Almeida theater through Jan. 25.
