HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Yanillys Pérez e-mailed us to let us know that last month she went to the Cannes Film Festival to promote the screening of a French miniseries titled "Carlos" (directed by Olivier Assayas) in which she acted. The film is based on the story of Venezuelan revolutionary Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, also known as Carlos the Jackal, who raided the OPEC headquarters in 1975 before being caught by the French police. In addition, another film in which she acted, Bushwick (directed by Luis Landívar), is scheduled for an August run an at art house cinema in NYC.

Rebeca Díaz can be seen in select July performances of the off-Broadway interactive improv musical comedy show titled LMAO. Performances are at the Ha! Comedy Club in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. In addition, she will perform with the Latino comedy troupe Lose Control at the Broadway Comedy Club in the Clinton neighborhood of Manhattan. Finally, she booked a stage tour for a repertory of plays with Boston-based Chambers Theater.

Gredivel Vásquez can be currently seen in the new production of Carlos Ferrari's El insólito caso de Mis' Piña Colada at Repertorio Español. Directed by René Buch with the assistance of Fernando Then, the show has received great reviews including a rave by The New York Times that one could read here. In addition, Ms. Vásquez booked a promotional film (called "Nuevos Americanos") and an on-camera commercial for TG&L.

Repertorio Español is presenting a production of Federico García Lorca's El público as part of the Van Lier Young Directors’ Fellowship. Directed by Van Lier Directing Fellow Andrés Zambrano, the production will happen at Repertorio's namesake theater in Manhattan's Gramercy district and feature Mariana Buoninconti, Ramón Hierro, Erickson Huertas, Alicia Lobo, Daniel Ojeda, Julio Ortega, María Viteri and José Ignacio Vivero. (Note: Hierro and Ortega, shown above from left to right, were called in to audition for the show through having their photos on the HOLA Pages online talent directory.

Sylvia Roldán Dohi, right, booked a voiceover for "Dateline" (NBC). The casting director found her through the HOLA Pages online talent directory.

A.B. Lugo is scheduled to open in the new production of Joe Pintauro's Raft of the Medusa this month. Directed by Alberto Bonilla, the play will take place at the Secret Theatre in the Long Island City area of Queens.
