F#%king Up Everything Tickets

A boy-meets-girl love story for the 21st century, F#%king Up Everything takes place in today’s Brooklyn indie music scene. 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.

What is the Story of F#%king Up Everything?
F#%king Up Everything is a classic boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy works to win girl back story—only here, the boy in question is a dorky children’s puppeteer Christian Schwartzelberg and the lady in question is an equally unique singer-songwriter Juliana. Through the course of the musical, seven young characters fall in love, bed-hop and partner-switch until each finds his/her perfect love.


A collection of our favorite reviews from professional news sources.

"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."

New York Post

Frank Scheck

"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. "

Huffington Post

Danny Groner

"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. "
