HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs.

Gladys K. Nilsen e-mailed us to let us know that she sang a repertoire of songs in English, Spanish and French, as well as a tribute to the Chilean miners at the restaurant ETC. ETC. located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Actor-dancer-choreographer Milteri Tucker brought a dance program to the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater in the Columbus Circle area of Manhattan. She and a company of nine performed a number she choreographed; it marked the first time the Afro-Puerto Rican dance bomba was presented on that stage.

Angelina Llongueras e-mailed us to let us know that her self-penned solo show Phoolan is Everyone was invited to perform in the Festival de Mujeres en Escena por la Paz: Memoria e Independencia and Festival de Teatro Contemporáneo de Mujeres theater festivals, in Bogotá and Cali, Colombia, respectively.

FELT and Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (the latter home to HOLA) is set to present The Pins and Needles of the Heart. Written and directed by Arcadio Ruiz Castellanos, the play is produced by Gloria Zelaya, is scheduled for a December run in the Flamboyán Theater in the CSV Center (located in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood) and features Jorge Hoyos, J.W. Cortés, Cristina Rodríguez, Paul Cosentino and Joanna Blais in the cast.

Tony Chiroldes booked the audiobook narration for the Spanish language version of Ricky Martin's memoir Me (naturally titled in Spanish, Yo).
