About this show

Yank! is a WW2 buddy-movie-of-a-musical, a love song both to the Hollywood "it takes one of every kind" platoon flicks as well as the lyricism of 1940s Broadway. It tells the story of Stu (a war reporter) and Mitch (a private) who fall in love in Basic Training and then meet again when Stu is on assignment reporting on Mitch's outfit. In addition to being suffused with songs (swing, big band, boogie-woogie) it explores what stories get told in wartime, what gets remembered, and how WW2 became the great catalyst in bringing gay men and women together. Featuring book and lyrics by David Zellnik, music by Joseph Zellnik, musical direction by Rob Berman, choreography by Chase Brock, and direction by Igor Goldin. Starring Doug Kreeger and Ivan Hernandez. Schedule Wednesday, September 14th at 8:00 pm Friday, September 16th at 8:00 pm Saturday, September 17th at 1:00 pm Sunday, September 18th at 1:00 pm and 4:30 pm Wednesday, September 21st at 4:30pm and 8:00pm
