Max Crumm headlines this new rock musical that takes place on the indie music scene.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Despite its title song dropping more F-bombs than you’d think possible in a single number, ‘F#%king Up Everything’ is actually a sweetly old-fashioned boy-meets-girl musical. Set in hipster-populated Williamsburg — quickly becoming a musical theater cliché — it possesses modest charms that won it several awards at 2009’s Musical Theatre Festival. The show is lighthearted, breezy fun. While youthful audiences will find it most relatable, older musical theater fans shouldn’t be put off by its deceptively offensive title.’’
‘‘For those seeking a fresh musical ripe with humor, ‘Everything’ delivers. Max Crumm sells the geeky and awkward Christian well, leading a strong, young cast. Katharine Cozumel fills in nicely as his love interest. ’’
‘‘Davis’ exuberant songs, executed by a vibrant young cast, keep the show from veering into hipster melodrama. The star of the show is Davis’ varied and upbeat score, which falls nicely in the uncategorizable category of indie rock. Davis has translated the tunes well for dramatic purposes, and the most interesting storytelling happens through songs. ’’
