is a storytelling-style show about one woman's quest to stalk, conquer, and convert a psychopath armed only with blind faith, a moral compass and a masters degree in social work.
Okay, that's not true. The truth is this show is about how an actual experience with a psychopathic nun gone wild teaches a young therapist an important lesson in faith-based approaches to therapy. And life itself!!!
Sorry. That's not true either. This show is a comic take - and true story - about how an encounter with a psychopath helps an over-eager therapist get over herself...when nothing else seems to be working.
That last one sounds authentic. It might actually be true. But as Crazytown: my first psychopath reveals, it is amazing how authentic a completely fake person can be.
55% funnier than any other show with the word "psychopath" in the the title, according to research we just made up.
If you've ever wondered "how could things go so wrong when I thought I was so right?" welcome to Crazytown.
Here is a video clip of the opening song from Crazytown, "Trust Yourself"
Crazytown has been selected for the International Midtown Theatre Festival will take place at the Abingdon Theater
in New York, NY in July and August. Dates and times will be announced as soon as the schedule becomes available.
