HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Esteban Benito, Lissette Espaillat and Lina Sarrello (pictured at right) can be seen in René Solivan's play Cheat. Directed by Anthony Ruiz, the play is being produced by Duo Theater at its eponymous space in Manhattan's East Village. (She got the audition due to an HOLA referral.)

Moisés Acevedo e-mailed us to let us that he worked on a new TV show starring Louis C.K. called "Louie" (FX) and did two voiceovers for a book company. In addition, he is working on this short film titled Kings Of Bushwick. The film Don't Let Me Drown, in which he stars, open on August 20 in selected theaters in NYC. He also co-hosts a radio show called "Pocket Change" (with Cassandra Kate Escobar), where they talk about everything-- planning, saving money, reaching goal and financial literacy for young people. The program airs every Tuesday at 2:30pm only on WDJZ Radio.

Luis Salgado has announced that he is leaving the Broadway musical In The Heights to move on to two different projects: the first being the concert staging of the Paul Simon/Derek Walcott musical The Capeman, to take place this summer at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park and then as a cast member of the Broadway musical version of Pedro Almodóvar's Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, to be produced by and at Lincoln Center.
