HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Bones Rodríguez booked a television commercial for New York Lottery's Powerball where he plays Manny, shown at right in a still photograph.

Mauricio Pita booked a print campaign for Merck.

Fernando Gamarra wrapped up filming the Mert Edis-helmed film The Barber.

Juan Villarreal just wrapped up working filming an episode of "Morales" (Telemicro).

Carlos A. González hosted a special event benefiting the Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon at The 9 Iron Grille in Paramus, New Jersey. For more information, click here.

Anaís Almonte starred alongside Stacey Griffin, Ron Rivera, Irma Cádiz, Víctor Cuenca and Edgar Maldonado in the play A Wound in Time. Written and directed by Stephanie Lynn Wilson, the production featured original music by Wil Milton and Rodney Carter and had a run in October and November at the St. Luke's Theatre in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes's Tony Award-winning musical In The Heights is having its premiere in Brazil. With direction by Wolf Mata (and musical direction by Paulo Nogueira), Luis Salgado is handling the choreography (with assistance from resident choreographer/director Thiago Jansen). [Salgado was an original cast member of the Broadway production and was its Latin dances choreographer.] The musical is scheduled for a run from July through September 2013 in Rio de Janeiro and from October through December 2013 in São Paulo. For more information, click here (website is in Portuguese).
