Max Crumm, George Salazar and Jason Gotay rock out weekly in the Off-Broadway musical comedy F#%king Up Everything. Here, the trio picks their favorite rock songs as part of's Playbill Playlist series.

F#%king Up Everything is billed 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."

The production, which stars Crumm (Grease) as the socially-awkward children's puppeteer Christian Mohammed Schwartzelberm, is offering fans the opportunity to win an original "Puppet of You," created by designer David Valentine. To enter, fill out an entry form on the F#%king Up Everything Facebook page; use the #FUEPuppet hashtag on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, explaining why you want your very own puppet; or enter in-person at the theatre.

Gotay (Bring It On), who stars as bad-boy (but good-at-heart) rocker Jake, and Salazar (Godspell), who plays the drummer of few words, are joined by Lisa Birnbaum, Dawn Cantwell, Katherine Cozumel and Douglas Widick.

The new musical has music and lyrics by David Eric Davis and a book by Sam Forman and Davis. It is directed and choreographed by Jen Wineman with orchestrations and music supervision by Matt Hinkley and music direction by Eli Zoller.
