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!

Hard working cast -- but the crux of the conflict was played out in the second act - the trial. I believe the whole first act could have been scrubbed in order to focus in greater detail on the conflicts and drama of the trial.
For example, there is no first act in "12 Angry Men" where we see the trial of the boy -- only the jury room where the drama plays out.
The whole first act here is setting. It is not essential to the drama.
Very nice theater. Great location. We'll return for future productions.
Jolted in the night, San Francisco’s East Bay residents attempted to shield themselves from shattering windows as the sky blazed. 320 people were killed, 400 more were injured, and everything within a one mile radius was destroyed in a flash. 50 survivors were imprisoned for mutiny. If you have not heard about the worst home front military disaster in our history, you will now know why. If you had already known about it, you will find out that there is still much more to the story.
