Salazar, who was also seen in the Broadway revival of Godspell, plays the drummer of few words in F#%king Up Everything. He is joined in the show by Max Crumm (Grease), Jason Gotay (Bring It On), Lisa Birnbaum, Dawn Cantwell, Katherine Cozumel and Douglas Widick.
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 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.
