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 names of HOLA members are in boldface.

Broadway producer Ken Davenport is, in an unprecedented move, opening up investment in the 40th anniversary production of Stephen Schwartz's musical Godspell to the theater-loving public. This crowd-funded, called by the producer "community-funded," model is the first time it has been applied to theater. The Broadway musical is scheduled to open in November 2011 at the Circle in the Square Theater. The producers of the show are called, collectively, The People of Godspell. Luis Salgado, Jamie Cesa, Roger Alan Gindi, Joe DiPietro and Gabriela García are among The People of Godspell. The revival will mark the first Broadway production of the musical since its original run transferred from off-Broadway to Broadway, closing at the Ambassador Theatre on September 4, 1977 after 527 performances.

Dennis Brito will be appearing in the play Paid Off. Written by Robert D. Argen and directed by Argen and Julia Frieri, the production will take place in July at The Hudson Guild Theater in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood as part of The Riant Theater's Strawberry Festival.

Also at The Riant Theater's Strawberry Festival will be
Ángel Dillemuth, who will appear in two plays: Criminal Mischief (written and directed by Ellen Orchid) and Flowers Don't Grow Here Anymore (written and directed by Josie Perrelli). Both shows will take place at The Hudson Guild Theater in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. For more information on the festival and the Summer 2011 lineup, click here.

Denia Brache will act in the play Cassanova Was a Woman. Written and directed by Jezabel Montero, the play also features Margo Singaliese, Carla-Marie Mercun, Jeffrey Moore Cusimano, Christian Castro, David Michaels and Camille West and will have an August run in The Living Theater (located in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood) as part of the 15th Annual New York International Fringe Festival (fringeNYC).
