After 10 years the cast of the Off-Broadway production of Yank! A WWII Love Story reunited for a celebratory concert at New York’s Feinstein’s/54 Below.
Yank! A WWII Love Story is a musical with books and lyrics by David Zellnik and music by Joseph Zellnik. The story follows a timid Midwestern boy Stu who gets drafted for World War II in 1943. There he becomes a photographer for Yank Magazine which chronicles stories for the servicemen. The musical navigates what it means to be a man in the 1940’s and highlights the experience of falling in love through tough times.
