Yank! A WWII Love Story

“Some stories didn’t make it into the history books”

In 1943, young Mid-Westerner Stu serves in the army as a reporter for Yank Magazine, the journal ‘for and by servicemen’. Following the men in Charlie Company, YANK! the musical explores what it means to be a man and fall in love… and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.

Based on the Off-Broadway hit production, YANK! transfers to London following a highly acclaimed run at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester earlier this year. Directed by James Baker, with a story and music by American brothers David and Joseph Zellnik, the musical pays homage to the timeless music of the 1940s. 

“YANK! is sensational” - Attitude 
“A touching, heart-rending show, superbly performed “- The Reviews Hub 
“...earthed with real sincerity and powered by a strong ensemble who bring a robustly masculine grace” - The Stage 
“James Baker’s direction, James Cleeve’s musical supervision and especially Chris Cuming’s choreography hit standards far in advance of what seems reasonable to expect from the fringe” - The Guardian
