Yank The Musical
Yank, the WW11 GAY love story, is delightful with the exception of the dreadful ballet dream sequence a la Billy Elliot. Bobby Steggert as Stu is a wonderful young actor with a dreamy lover in Ivan Hernandez. The warning on "nudity" was a split second bum shot, so don't get your hopes up on seeing this handsome cast doing the full Monty. Extended for another 2 week.Yes , I nearly forgot the sole lady in the cast Nancy Anderson was a 1 women show all to herself. Wished she was better miked for the sultry singer roles. Buy a ticket today. You snooze, you loose.

YANK! gets it title from Yank Magazine, which grew to become the most widely read and most popular magazine in the history of the U.S. Army. By the end of World War II, twenty-three various editions of Yank Magazine had been published. At the height of the magazine's operations, there were printing presses in Honolulu, Cairo, Tokyo, Okinawa, Rome, Trinidad, Saipan and other places, and the weekly achieved a worldwide circulation of 2,600,000. It is thought to have been read by ten million. The magazine, which was staffed entirely by enlisted soldiers, printed its last issue in December 1945, realizing for the War Department a profit of $1,000,000.
