So thrilled by the immense welcome Yank! has received from the community of Manchester and the critics, both local and national! The cast and team all get well-deserved praise. Here's to an amazing run!
"The plushly scored piece by brothers Joseph and David Zellnik is an unabashed throwback to the golden era of Broadway, in which the creators have attempted to imagine “the show that Rodgers and Hammerstein never wrote”. Indeed, it’s the show that no classic Broadway team could possibly have written, as it deals with the subject of gay men in the US army at a time when the penalty for homosexuality was three years in military prison." https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2017/mar/17/yank-review-hope-mill-manchester-joseph-david-zellnik-gay-servicemen

"[An] innovative piece which buckles the trend of new pop-musicals... the story of Stu and Mitch, and the men they represent, will hopefully live on for years to come." https://www.thegayuk.com/theatre-review-yank-the-musical/
