YANK! is a love song to Hollywood's "it takes one of every kind" platoon flicks and to 1940s Broadway. Suffused with songs reminiscent of the era – from swing to big band to boogie-woogie – YANK! concerns what stories get told in wartime, and how WWII became the great catalyst in bringing gay men and women together. “… a bright and enjoyable score that pays homage to the Rodgers & Hammerstein sound … YANK! is a bright, original and moving winner of a musical that earns its exclamation point!” – Variety.

There are things we don’t talk about as a community because it’s shameful, it’s sad, and it’s painful. It’s hard to talk about times we’ve been targeted for being lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and/or queer. It’s hard to talk about the harassment, the bullying, and the violence we have faced, sometimes even from those we know and care about.
Theatre is a medium that allows for stories to be narrated, stories to be heard, and stories to be uplifted. Theatre provides an opportunity to express the embarrassing, the disheartening, and the painful experiences of those within marginalized groups.
Join us for a night of story sharing, community, dialogue, and ultimately a celebration of resilience of the LGBTQ+ community benefiting the Virginia Anti-Violence Project.Get Tickets
