HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Mauricio Leyton
has been cast in the Arkansas Repertory Theater production of Peter Morgan's Frost/Nixon. Directed by Gilbert McCauley, the production is scheduled for an April premiere at the theater, located in Little Rock.

Juan Villarreal, seen at right, can be seen in an upcoming episode of the HBO series "How To Make It in America." He got the gig through a casting notice sent to HOLA members.

Damaris Cabrera and Daisy Cabrera (no relation), shown at left, booked a pharmaceutical print ad due to a casting notice sent to our HOLA members. In addition, Damaris Cabrera filmed a short film called Victor's Masterpiece, directed by Rob Santana.

Gilbert Cruz performed in a workshop production of Lope de Vega's The Duchess of Amalfi's Steward. It was directed by Michael John Garcés and presented at the Red Bull Theater, located at the Theater at St. Clement's in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. He followed this up with a role in the independent film GWB, written and to be directed by Jonathan Ullman.

Graciela Lecube starred in the film Rosa and the Executioner of the Fiend, which is now available on DVD. The film, written and directed by Iván Acosta, also starred Gabriel Gorcés, Rubén Rabasa, Susan Rybin and Ileana Canal. To read a review of the movie, click here.

A.B. Lugo performed his spoken word poetry (along with Aja Monet and Simply Rob) at an event entitled Speak Up! Speak Out! at El Museo Del Barrio. The poetry series is curated by Emanuel Xavier and this particular incarnation was hosted by Caridad De La Luz.
