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. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Luis Salgado, shown at right, is joining the cast of the Broadway musical Rocky. Based on the Academy Award-winning film written by and starring Sylvester Stallone and directed by John G. Avildsen, the musical is written by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (music and lyrics) and Thomas Meehan (book) and will be directed by Alex Timbers. The musical stars Andy Karl, Margo Siebert, Terence Archie, Dakin Matthews and Danny Mastrogiorgio. The musical will hit Broadway's Winter Garden Theatre in February 2014 (with a slated opening in March 2014) after a successful premiere in Hamburg, Germany (where it is still running).

Joel Pérez, shown at left, who can currently be seen at the Public Theater in the musical Fun Home (written by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, based on the memoirs of Alison Bechdel and directed by Sam Gold), will be, along with the rest of the cast, recording the music for a cast recording. The recording will be released by PS Classics in February 2014. The show runs through the end of December 2013 and there are whispers of a possible Broadway transfer.
