Charing Cross Theatre
The Arches Villiers Street London

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.

It runs not far away from another high profile LGBT production, Rotterdam, which will finish its short run this weekend.
