The sensational Yank! is coming to the West End's Charing Cross theatre!
The musical begins with a young man in present-day San Francisco who finds an old diary in a junk shop…
Through the journal we learn the story of Stu, a scared Midwestern kid who gets drafted in 1943, and who – like most guys – spends Basic Training wrestling with fears of whether he “has what it takes” to make it in the Army. But unlike most guys, Stu also falls in love with a fellow Private, a handsome All-American guy named Mitch..
YANK! tells Stu’s, Mitch’s, and Artie’s stories, as well as the stories of the other men in Charlie Company. It explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.
★★★★★ YANK! is sensational. James Baker’s direction gets every beat and gear change just right.. -- Attitude
★★★★★ Another 5-star gem. (…) it is a completely immersive and multi layered emotional piece of theatre. -- North West End
★★★★ YANK! fully deserves its instant standing ovation and is a touching, heart-rending show superbly performed by a cast oozing with confidence and class. The eye-catching choreography from Chris Cuming is brought to life with precision and energy… -- The Reviews Hub
