HOLA Member Bochinche

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

The Theatre Academy, in association with Los Angeles City College and Kevin Morrissey, is presenting a benefit staged reading of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. Directed by Al Rossi, the benefit for the Theatre Academy's scholarship fund will take place in March at the Camino Theater in Los Angeles and star Tony Plana, Esaí Morales, Elizabeth Peña and Danny Pino.

Gilbert Cruz recently shot a commercial for AARP as well as a PSA highlighting President Obama's healthcare option.

Rodney Roldán has just finished up work on the films Ten Buck Baton, Our Secret and In My Pocket.

Rafael Fuentes and Fabián González will appear in the production Don Cristóbal: Billy Club Man. Inspired by the puppet plays of Federico García Lorca, the piece is directed by Erin Orr and Elysa Marden (the former of which also designed the puppets), contains original music by Rima Fand and will have a March and April run at the Flamboyán Theater in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood.

Antonio García, Jr. will be on the pilot episode of "Facing Trauma," a series on the new Discovery Fit & Health Channel.

Thalía Spanish Theatre, under the leadership of producer Ángel Gil Orrios, will present Flamenco and Indian Music and Dance, a program of the music and dance of India and Spain. A co-production with Lotus Music & Dance & Andrea Del Conte Danza España, the presentations will take place in April at Thalía's namesake theater in Sunnyside, Queens.
