The most intriguing new American musical to reach New York in several seasons: "bright, original and moving" is how Variety described YANK! Following it's 2010 off-Broadway premiere. It's twice-extended, sold-out run at the York Theatre was the recipient of seven Drama Desk, three Outer Critics Circle, and two Lucille Lortel nominations - all including Best Musical. Written by Joseph Zellnik (music) and David Zellnik (book and lyrics), YANK!, a love song to Hollywood's "it takes one of every kind-" platoon flicks, tells the story of Stu, a scared Midwestern kid who becomes a reporter for (the real) Army magazine Yank, faces his fear in battle, and perhaps even scarier for him, finds love with a fellow soldier named Mitch. With a lively and tuneful score inspired by the theatre and pop sounds of the 1940s, the show captures the spirit and exuberance of the World War II era even as it explores questions of prejudice, courage and survival.
