HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Teatro Las Tablas presented El retrato oval at is space in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan. Based on the work by Edgar Allan Poe, it was adapted by Héctor Palacios and directed by Alain Michel Martínez and featured Ydaiber Orozco and Palacios in the cast.

Richard Malavet
has a residency in July at the Metropolitan Room (located in the Flatiron district of Manhattan) with his cabaret show The Billy Eckstine Project: Songs in the Key of “B.”

Jorge Hoyos is acting in the Nylon Fusion Collective production of Lope De Vega's Fuenteovejuna at the Flamboyán Theater in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in the Loísaida neighborhood of Manhattan.

Laura O. Sáenz can be seen in Girls Night: The Musical at the Downstairs Theater @ Sofia's in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Bárbara Bonilla
can be seen in You've Got Hate Mail at the Triad Theater in the West Side of Manhattan.

Tony Chiroldes was awarded a seed grant by the Jim Henson Foundation for the development and presentation of Before Icarus Fell, a live-actor, video and shadow puppetry piece with music. The production is inspired by the life of Alberto Santos Dumont (1873-1932), one of the world's earliest aviators. Santos Dumont, in his native country of Brazil, is considered the true father of aviation. Before Icarus Fell is slated to premier in November 2010. (Blogger's note: Chiroldes can be currently seen in the cast of the hit Broadway musical In The Heights.)
