Jeremy Handelman/Off The Leash Productions has announced the stellar cast for the Off-Broadway Premiere of F#%king Up Everything, the award-winning rock musical comedy by David Eric Davis and Sam Forman.
The F#%king Up Everything cast includes Max Crumm as Christian Mohammed Schwartzelberg with Lisa Birnbaum, Dawn Cantwell, Katherine Cozumel, Jason Gotay, George Salazar, and Douglas Widick.
F#%KING UP EVERYTHING is described as a rock musical comedy with heart. Set in today's Brooklyn indie music scene, it is an old-fashioned boy-meets-girl love story for the 21st Century. When these hipsters aren't true to who they are, they screw up everything. Especially love. And no one screws up more than children's puppeteer Christian Mohammed Schwartzelberg when he meets singer-songwriter Juliana, the girl of his dreams.
F#%KING UP EVERYTHING first took the stage at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2009 where it was recognized with the NYMF Awards for Excellence for Book, Lyrics (Honorable Mention), Outstanding Performance and Best Ensemble (Honorable Mention). In 2011, the show was presented at Washington, D.C's Woolly Mammoth where it was called "An hour and a half of pure, unadulterated fun" - DC Theatre Scene (5 Stars!); "Rocks the house!" Washington Post; "So well-conceived, so perfectly executed" - Washington City Paper.
F#%KING UP EVERYTHING has music & lyrics by David Eric Davis, a book by Sam Forman and David Eric Davis. It will be directed & choreographed by Jen Wineman, orchestrations & music supervision by Matt Hinkley and music direction by Eli Zoller.
