If there’s one thing we can take away from Dave Thomas Brown’s American Psycho performance, it’s blood. Lots of blood. “I had a pretty tremendous death with all sorts of fun blood effects,” he shared of his role in the Tony-nominated Broadway musical, which is based on the best-selling novel by Bret Easton Ellis.
In addition to his supporting actor role, he also worked overtime this spring as the understudy for the lead role: a debonair Wall Street banker with a penchant for murder. It’s a new experience for Brown. “Let me tell you … it’s a full-time job learning your own part and also the part of the person who speaks nearly every line in the show. But it’s exciting.”
