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, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Cedric Miró is performing in the movement piece The Record. Produced by 600 Highwaymen, the production is directed by Michael Silverstone and will have a February run at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Downtown Brooklyn. For more information, click here.

Edison Carrera will star in the Félix Andrés Martínez play Made in Guasmo. The play, produced by the Union City Performing Arts Center and Procreart, Inc., is directed by Cecill Villar and will take place in March at the Union City Performing Arts Center in Union City, New Jersey.

The Lin-Manuel Miranda-Quiara Alegría Hudes musical In The Heights returned to New York for a one-night-only benefit. It was performed in concert version in the upper Manhattan neighborhood where the production takes place-- Washington Heights. Simply titled In The Heights: In Concert, it took place at The United Palace of Cultural Arts on Monday, February 11, 2013 and was presented by The Broadway League's Viva Broadway initiative. The concert will feature many of the cast members of the original Broadway and first national tours, including Miranda (shown at right with the company), Karen Olivo, Olga Merediz, Robin De Jesús, Janet Dacal, Mandy González, Chris Jackson, Tony Chiroldes, Blanca Camacho and Rogelio Douglas, among others. A surplus of ticket sales proceeds will go towards The Broadway League's Family First Nights, a nationwide program specifically designed to encourage at risk families to attend theater on a regular basis and to local arts programs in Washington Heights.

Mauricio Alexander wrote and starred in Sweethearts. Directed by Leyla Tatiana Rosario, the short film also starred Dina Cataldi, Brian Roland, Stephanie Domini and Jared DiCroce and deals with a Valentine’s Day date that turns disastrous (or does it?). You can see the film by clicking on the video below. For more information, click here.
