Yank! features new music by Joseph Zellnik with book and lyrics by David Zellnik. The cast includes Bobby Steggert (Ragtime), Nancy Anderson (A Class Act, Wonderful Town), Jeffry Denman (White Christmas, The Producers) and Ivan Hernandez. Igor Goldin directs.
According to The York Theatre, Yank! "tells the story of Stu, a scared Midwestern kid who gets drafted for World War II in 1943, and becomes a photographer for Yank Magazine, the journal 'for and by the servicemen.' Yank! has a score that pays homage to the 1940s and explores what it means to be a man, and what it is to fall in love and struggle."
