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.

Zahaira Curiel has just joined the cast of Plátanos and Collard Greens. The long running show, which is written by David Lamb and directed by Summer Hill Seven, continues to have performances at the Baruch Performing Arts Center in the Gramercy area of Manhattan. For more information, including that of the show schedule and how to buy tickets, click here.

Gilbert Cruz and Susanna Guzmán will appear in the short play Comida de p*ta (F@$king Lousy Food). Written by Desi Moreno-Penson and directed by José Zayas, the play also features Maggie Bofill and Ismael Cruz Córdova in the cast and will be part of the Ensemble Studio Theatre's Going To The River festival at its space in the Hell's Kitchen section of Manhattan. For more information, click here.

Iván Camilo, Maité Bonilla and Rosie Berrido appear in the film Under My Nails. The film will have its world premiere as the opening night film of the Festival de Cine Internacional de San Juan in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The film is written by Kisha Tikina Burgos, directed by Ari Maniel Cruz and also features Burgos, Marilú Acosta, Dolores Pedro, Enrique Juliá, Miranda Purcell and Antonio Pantojas in the cast.

Gladys K. Nilsen has a new single out. Called "Un regazo de amor," the song is written and performed by Nilsen and is available on CDBaby by clicking here.

Marcelino Feliciano will be acting opposite Michael Cumpsty and Kathryn Meisle in a production of William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. He will be understudying the role of Don Pedro (where he will spell Steven Skybell). Produced by Two River Theater Company, the production is directed by Sam Buntrock, scheduled for a September and October run and will take place at the Joan and Robert Rechnitz Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey. For more information, click here.

Lucio Fernández has just returned from doing his Broadway-style cabaret show in Ecuador, where he performed with the Guayaquil Symphony Orchestra, and in Mexico, where he performed in several hotels including the RIU Palace Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. He returned to the States just in time to host the September episode of "Live on Stage" for La Bandeja TV where he featured the vocal stylings of jazz singer Terese Genecco and Her Big Band. The episode is below.
