Yank! is a love song to Hollywood's "it takes one of every kind" platoon flicks and to 1940's Broadway. With a lively score inspired by the theatre and pop sounds of the 1940's, the show captures the spirit and exuberance of the World War II era even as it explores questions of prejudice, courage and survival.
Yank! enjoyed critical and popular success during its twice-extended, sold-out run at the York Theatre Company in 2010, receiving seven Drama Desk nominations, three Outer Critics Circle nominations, and two Lucille Lortel nominations -- all including Best Musical. Previous production include the Diversionary Theatre in San Diego, The Gallery Players in Brooklyn and NYMF 2005.
