Crazy Head Space is a manic musical celebrating a dizzying kaleidoscope of mental and emotional disorders. Set inside the world of The Cranium Café, Crazy Head Space serves up a wild series of psychological disorders that run the gamut from Depression to Zoophilia. Come spend an average day inside the head of people with mental disorders and learn a little more about yourself in the process. Taste the excitement of all those disorders you've read about but supposedly have managed to avoid thus far. Crazy Head Space is guaranteed to leave you laughing at your own nervous breakdown! Share the highs and lows and rediscover the "crazy" within you!

Crazy Head Space offers a riveting, wild score by contemporary composers Elizabeth S. Davis and Michelangelo Sosnowitz, and a gloriously insane lyric book by Elizabeth S. Davis.
