News   Haskell Replaces Calvert in NYMF's F#@king Up Everything
9 to 5's Neil Haskell has joined the cast of the New York Musical Theatre Festival production of F#@king Up Everything, which begins performances Oct. 6 at the 45th Street Theater.

Haskell is also known for his performance on the dance competition series "So You Think You Can Dance" and Off-Broadway's Altar Boyz. He replaces the previously announced Heath Calvert (Good Vibrations), who will join the Broadway revival of Hair.

F#@king Up Everything features music and lyrics by David Eric Davis, with a book by Davis and Sam Forman. Stephen Brackett will direct the NYMF staging that runs through Oct. 16.

The cast also features Tony nominee Liz Larsen (Hairspray, Most Happy Fella), Noah Weisberg (South Pacific, Legally Blonde), Jenna Coker-Jones (Evil Dead, Fame), Kate Rockwell (Legally Blonde) and Leif Huckman.

Press notes for the musical read: "Can Christian Mohammed Schwartzelberg stay true to himself and still get the girl? Or will he lose her to the guy in leather pants? Set against the backdrop of Brooklyn's indie music scene complete with a gallery of hipsters, stoners, artists, cougars, songwriters and puppeteers, F#@king Up Everything is a rock musical comedy with heart. And ironic t-shirts."

Matt Hinkley provides orchestrations, arrangements and musical direction for the production; the design team includes Daniel Zimmerman (set design), Jessica Pabst (costume design) and Joel E. Silver (lighting design). For tickets phone (212) 352-3101 or visit NYMF. The 45th Street Theater is located at 354 W. 45th Street.
