Jeremy Handelman/Off The Leash Productions kicks off the Off-Broadway Premiere of F#%KING UP EVERYTHING, the award-winning rock musical comedy by David Eric Davis and Sam Forman this week, beginning its open-ended run tonight, March 15 and opening March 24, 2013. The cast recorded a series of videos about "getting their heart on" (the tagline of the show). Watch all three below!

The F#%KING UP EVERYTHING cast includes Max Crumm (TV's "You're the One That I Want," Broadway: Grease. Film: Easy A), as Christian Mohammed Schwartzelberg with Lisa Birnbaum (I'm Getting My Act Together..., Abraham Lincoln's Big Gay Dance Party), Dawn Cantwell (Dog Fight, NYMF's Next Broadway Sensation Winner), Katherine Cozumel (Rent, Spring Awakening, The Last Five Years), Jason Gotay (Broadway: Bring It On), George Salazar (Broadway: Godspell. National Tour: Spring Awakening), and Douglas Widick (Films: Hipsters (are Roaming the Campus), Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury . Stage: Marat/Sade).

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.

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.
