Alice Ripley  joins Broadway cast of 'American Psycho' show

NEW YORK (AP) — Tony Award-winner Alice Ripley will be helping out a complete psycho onstage this spring.

Ripley, along with her former "Next to Normal" co-star Jennifer Damiano, will join Benjamin Walker in the musical based on the novel "American Psycho" by Bret Easton Ellis. Performances begin March 24 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre.

The book for the stage version was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. Duncan Sheik penned music and lyrics for more than a dozen original songs. It centers on a yuppie serial killer who is obsessed with high-end clothes and beauty products even as he slashes his way through Manhattan.

Christian Bale starred in the 2000 film version.

Ripley won a Tony for "Next to Normal" and Damiano earned a Tony nomination playing her daughter.
