Yank 10 Year Anniversary Concert

Yank! A WWII Love Story is a 2005 musical with book and lyrics by David Zellnik and music by his brother Joseph. Yank! “tells the story of Stu, a scared Midwestern kid who gets drafted for World War II in 1943, and becomes a photographer for Yank Magazine, the journal ‘for and by the servicemen.’ Yank! has a score that pays homage to the 1940s and explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle.” Yank! takes its title from the World War II publication Yank, the Army Weekly.



A special celebratory concert to mark the 10th anniversary of the musical Yank! opening off-Broadway. When this romantic gay love story set during WWII opened in 2010 at the York Theatre it was a surprise hit, garnering rave reviews and a raft of award nominations. 10 years later, actors from the original productions as well as guests from productions around the globe (London, Rio, and Brisbane) celebrate the worldwide journey of this great musical.
