Photo Flash: Chicago Premiere of YANK! A WWII LOVE STORY

YANK! A WWII LOVE STORY is the story of a midwestern boy who joins the Army during World War II, falls in love with another soldier and is introduced to the gay underground of the Armed Services through a journalist for the Army magazine YANK. David Zak is directing the musical, with Robert Ollis providing musical direction and Jenna Schoppe choreography.

The musical, a product of the New York Musical Theatre Festival, gained critical attention, awards nominations and a loyal audience in its 2010 production by the off-Broadway York Theatre Company. Though a planned Broadway production never happened, YANK! has been produced on three continents, and a production played at the Charing Cross Theatre in London's West End in summer 2017. YANK! will play in the Pride Arts Center's 85-seat Broadway stage, at 4139 N. Broadway, through February 18, 2018.
