New York based actor/therapist, Jude Treder-Wolff, will be taking her solo show, CrAzYToWn: MY FIRST PSYCHOPATH, to The Chicago Fringe Festival today, Aug 31st – Sept 2nd & The San Francisco Fringe Festival Sept 8th – 16th.

How do you know that nice, helpful guy in the next cubicle is a psychopath? You don't.

In CrAzYToWn: MY FIRST PSYCHOPATH, real-life therapist/performer Jude Treder-Wolff takes you down the rabbit hole of belief that led to her being blind-sided by reality. It's a comic take on an over-eager therapist getting over herself when nothing else seemed to be working.

The Chicago performances will take place at Black Cloud Gallery, 1909 S Halsted, Chicago, IL 60608. Show dates are Friday, August 31st @ 7:00 pm; Saturday, September 1st @ 5:30pm; Sunday, September 2nd @ 10:00 pm. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at or by calling 866-811-4111.
