Some stories didn’t make it into the history books

In 1943, young Mid-Westerner Stu serves in the army as a reporter for Yank Magazine, the journal ‘for and by servicemen’.

Following the men in Charlie Company, the musical explores what it means to be a man and fall in love… and struggle to survive in a time and place where the odds are stacked against you.

Based on the Off-Broadway hit production, it transfers to London following a highly acclaimed run at the Hope Mill in Manchester. Scott Hunter reprises his lead.

“Ambitious and sincere 1940s-style musical with a difference.”

Mark Shenton (The Stage, London Theatre, Express)

“Plushly scored... an unabashed throwback... A touching variation on the Broadway verities... Smoothly accomplished production.”

Other newspaper reviewers

“It is hard to think of a more beautifully crafted and engaging plea for love and tolerance than this unexpected gem.”

Alun Hood (What's On Stage)

“Powerful... Hunter and Coxon are mellifluous and moving as the hapless lovers, supported by an expert ensemble”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“Given a nifty production... brings its themes to sometimes painful, sometimes toe-tapping life... Lacks memorable melodies.”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)
