You definitely haven’t seen this version of “Yank! The Musical.” Columbus’ LGBTQA Theatre Company and director Jimmy Bohr completely redefine the production with a major plot twist: the two male soldiers are in love.

Surprised you’d find that in a musical depicting WWII? Don’t be. From love to anguish and everything in between, these scenarios and views come from real gay, lesbian and straight WWII service members.

Van Fleet Theatre

549 Franklin Ave., Downtown

May 28-June 6
