F#%KING UP EVERYTHING

F#%KING UP EVERYTHING is a rock musical comedy with bongs, thongs and indie rock songs. It's also an old-fashioned boy-meets-girl love story. When these Brooklyn hipsters aren't true to who they are, they ruin everything. Especially children's puppeteer Christian Schwartzelberg, when he meets singer-songwriter Juliana, the girl of his dreams. Featuring a young cast of Broadway's rising stars including Max Crumm (Grease), Jason Gotay (Bring It On), George Salazar (Godspell), and Dawn Cantwell (NYMF's Next Broadway Sensation), a score that rocks the house, and an award winning book by David Eric Davis and Sam Forman. F#%KING UP EVERYTHING will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you with a "heart on" for days on end.

SO - for your chance to win 2 tickets to F#%KING UP EVERYTHING , go to our Facebook Page to view the Trivia Question and you could be a winner.
