“Doctor Who” star Matt Smith already has some big plans after saying goodbye to the Doctor during the show’s 2013 Christmas special. The actor is next headed for the stage, starring in a musical adaptation of “American Psycho” as main character Patrick Bateman.
Smith will begin performances of the London show on December 3 at the Almeida Theatre, before the official opening night on December 12. The production of “American Psycho” will run through January 25, 2014, according to THR.
This is the first time a music adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis novel has been staged. The 2000 movie adaptation of “American Psycho” featured Christian Bale in the lead role, long before he became Batman.
