“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 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.
