We here at Classicalite understand that the week can be long and sometime some stories go unread. That is why we have devised the Weekly Reprise to keep you up to date on all the latest buzz. Show-Tune junkies get ready for next fix. It was recently announced that the London cast recording of American Psycho the Musical will be released alongside the show’s Broadway debut. Starring Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and featuring music by Spring Awakenings own Duncan Sheik, this blood soaked ode to the 80’s is a must grab. Speaking of must. Sony Masterworks is gearing up to release a live audio recording of the UK’s production of Kinky Boots.

Recently, Spring Awakening vet and American Psycho cast member Jennifer Damiano spoke to Broadway World about Duncan Sheik’ music:

“Well I think, for one thing, Duncan’s music... he has a really special way of making stories that you think wouldn't work as musicals work. His music just kind of makes sense with the story. I think he's really good at doing that, obviously with Spring Awakening, and this piece as well. But, yeah, it's kind of amazing what they've done. It just, for some crazy reason, makes sense this way. It's very watchable for anybody that might think it isn't.”

American Psycho begins previews on March 24, 2016 and will officially opening date set for April 20, 2016. American Psycho the Musical will be performed at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre located at 236 West 45th Street. Tickets are on sale now at http://americanpsychothemusical.com.

American Psycho the Original London Cast Recording will be released on March 25, one day after Broadway previews begin.

Sony Masterworks will soon be serving up a live audio recording of Kinky Boots rom the London's Adelphi Theatre,starring Killian Donnelly as Charlie and Matt Henry as Lola.

The live recording of the Grammy Award winning show will be available for pre-order on March 11 will be released on April 1.
