2013–2014 Concert Readings
Washington DC is the second-largest theatre town in North America. There are very few theatres currently in DC that exclusively reflect the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) experience. We're very excited about this new project, but we need help to make it happen. Please show your support.

Yank! (the hit Off-Broadway musical) 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.
