Set in the nightclub of a small, backwater town somewhere South of the Border, El Grande De Coca Cola is a hilarious look at small-town life and big-time entertainment. Pepe Hernandez boasts in the local press that he's bringing a group of international cabaret stars to town, thanks to help of his uncle, the manager of the local Coca-Cola bottling plant. But when Pepe's plans don't exactly come together, his "Parade of the Stars" has a different look. Don't miss this timeless comedy that has been entertaining audiences for more than 30 years!

We really enjoyed this performance which generated a discussion among the three of us (seniors) relating to the Depression, worker's rights, leaving a place of employment, collective family memory of hard times etc., so I would say that the subject matter was well presented. We liked the play itself and the actors (full cast) really all did a wonderful job! Particularly enjoyed the two actors who represented an Irish immigrant and Gussie. Very enjoyable afternoon of theater.

Arthur Miller’s autobiographical play will be staged at the Ruskin Group Theatre for a limited time. The play elegantly, and hilariously at times, depicts the way a common experience can bond people together.
Miller says of the era, "There were two occasions when Americans lived through a common experience, not in the first world war or even the second, or in Korea, or even Vietnam, but in the Civil War and the Great Depression, that is when everybody was in the same boat…and perhaps we understood each other a little bit better then."
Set during a time of 25% unemployment, Miller’s play conjures the dreams of a young man yearning for a college education and a life beyond the hopelessness of the 1930s Great Depression. Originally produced on Broadway in 1955, this piece draws from the playwright’s own experiences, and focuses on several working-class characters diligently earning a living in a Brooklyn automobile parts warehouse. The Broadway revival production was recognized with 9 Drama Desk Award nominations, a Tony, and Theatre World Award.
