HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting gigs.

Mario Golden will soon present his solo show, Confessions of a Papi Chulo. Selected to be part of the One Festival, the show is directed by Andreas Robertz and will be presented at Teatro LA TEA in the CSV Cultural Center (home to HOLA) in the Loisaida section of Manhattan.

Luis Carlos de La Lombana will also present his solo show, A Stone That Keeps Rolling. Self-penned, the show (in which he plays Mick Jagger), will be directed by Susan Batson and produced by Black Nexxus as part of its Slices of Lives festival at its eponymous space in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

V-Day NYC is presenting Eve Ensler's play The Vagina Monologues (Los monólogos de la vagina) in a bilingual production. Presented as a benefit to stop violence against women and girls, the play is scheduled for an April run at the Nuyorican Poets' Café in Manhattan's East Village and features Gabriela García and Tresha Rodríguez in the cast.

Thalía Spanish Theatre presented a new tango musical called Borges & Piazzolla Tango. Created, produced and designed by Ángel Gil Orrios, the production features the collaboration between the writer Jorge Luis Borges and the composer Astor Piazzolla and features musical direction, arrangements and additional music by Latin Grammy winner Raúl Jaurena. The company features Marga Mitchell, Francisco Fuertes and Soledad López in the cast and is running at Thalía's namesake theater in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Queens.

Miguel Ángel Juan made history as the first Puerto Rican clown in Belarus. For more information, click here for the article (note that it is in Spanish).
