The “American Psycho” Musical is Coming to America

14 Jul

American Psycho Musical

After premiering in England with former Doctor Matt Smith in the role of Patrick Bateman, the American Psycho musical (based on the book of the same name) is coming to New York City via the Second Stage Theatre in early 2015.

The show originally premiered in the Almeida Theatre in London to an extended, sold out run. Although how much of that had to do with Matt Smith as the charismatic serial-killer and how much had to do with the 80’s inspired music we’re not sure.

“We’re going to put a bit more ‘psycho’ in the text and production; a little more horror and suspense,” said the book’s writer of the musical’s move across the pond.

Queen of the TearlingThe Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen

On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown.

Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust.

But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend…if she can survive.

The Queen of the Tearling introduces readers to a world as fully imagined and terrifying as that of The Hunger Games, with characters as vivid and intriguing as those of The Game of Thrones, and a wholly original heroine. Combining thrilling action and twisting plot turns, it is a magnificent debut from the talented Erika Johansen.

WHY WE’RE EXCITED: We must admit, we were intrigued by the hype machine with this one. Particularly that the author garnered a seven figure book deal for a series inspired by A Song of Ice and Fire with a female empowerment stance and a side of Barack Obama. What does that even mean?
