"American Psycho - The Musical" - Cast Album News And Why You Should Listen to Cassie Compton


Twitter can be a wonderful thing.  We initially discovered there was going to be a cast recording of "American Psycho - The Musical" via a tweet from Duncan Sheik and now he's done it again:


Obviously, no news of a release date yet but I wouldn't be surprised if it coincides with the transfer to the West End.  After all, nothing better than being able to buy the CD on your way out of the theatre.

Cassie Compton of course, played Jean and I, for one, am extremely glad that she's involved in this (you always have a concern that the odd one will drop out and be replaced in the cast recording) because, as I noted in my review, she has the voice of an angel.  She really did lift the character of Jean - she's vulnerable and sympathetic without being cloying.  In fact, if you didn't manage to see "American Psycho - The Musical" then you can listen to some of her music on her own Youtube Channel.  To give you a taste, here's "Whispers of Heaven":



See?  A gorgeous voice and proof, if any were needed, that they really did completely nail the casting of "American Psycho - The Musical".

Now, all we have to do is wait....
