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.

Alfred Molinashown at right, and John Lithgow star in the Ira Sachs film Love is Strange, which most recently garnered great buzz at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. To read an interview with Mssrs Molina and Lithgow, check out Peter Knegt's article in Indiewire's Bent blog by clicking here.

J.W. Cortés and Caridad de la Luz (the latter sometimes known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja) are filming Daniel Hastings' feature Venus de Macho. For more information, click here.

Éric-Dominique Pérez appeared for a second time in Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Día (in its Sunday arts section "Adominguear"), where his self-penned solo show El Gringuito (directed by A.B. Lugo and assistant directed by Billy Martin Mejía) was highlighted as a pick of the week. To read the article (which is in Spanish), look at the photo at left (and click on it to make it larger).

Kiki Mélendez will be presenting another evening of standup comedians titled Hot Tamales Live! The critically acclaimed and award-winning comedy show (which was seen on Showtime and can now be seen on Hulu Plus), will feature Meléndez as she presents comedians Amy Anderson, Vargus Mason, April Macie, Tiffany Haddish, Aida Rodríguez, Erik Rivera and very special guest Nadine Velázquez. The event will happen on Sunday, February 9, 2014 at the Inside Jokes Comedy Club, located in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles, California.

IATI Theater, in association with Artistas Españolas-New York/Spanish Artists in New York (AENY), just wrapped up a production of Alfredo Sanzol's Días estupendos. Directed by Ignacio García Bustelo, the play starred Ricardo Birnbaum, María CuarteroPep Muñoz María Peyramaure and Xabi Soret (an all-HOLA member cast and director), and ran in January at IATI's namesake theater in Manhattan's East Village.
