Re-review: Yank! A WWII Love Story, Charing Cross

"I know it's difficult to imagine it now
Here in a world that's going mad
But picture the two of us
On some lazy day
When bombs away
Is just a game kids play"

Not got too much more to say about the gorgeous Yank! A WWII Love Story that I didn't already say in my rave review from the beginning of the run (but blimey how those lyrics up top resonate in a different way now!). It's been great to see the show getting such good reviews and fantastic word of mouth, not the easiest of things for an original new musical to achieve, and I always knew that I'd be paying a second visit to the show before it finished. You've got a couple more opportunities yourself and as if you needed any more convincing - here's a video of the lovely Andy Coxon singing one of the show's more emotional numbers. 


Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes (with interval)
