HOLA Member Bochinche

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

The Rafael Spregelburd play La estupidez for a short run at the Repertorio Español in the Gramercy area of Manhattan and be helmed by Julián J. Mesri, a Van Lier Young Directors Fellow. The cast includes Yanko Bakulic, Mariana Buoninconti, Freia Canals, Mario Mattei and Eric Robledo and is set for a late July, early August run.

Manhattan Repertory Theater is presenting Memory is a Culinary Affair as part of their Summerfest 2010. Written by Graciela Berger Weisman and directed by Heather Violanti, the play is set to occur at Manhattan Rep's eponymous theater in the theater district of midtown Manhattan and features Ydaiber Orozco, Mariana Parma and Juan Villarreal in the cast.

Actor-playwright-producer Mario Golden e-mailed us from Berlin, Germany to tell us that he is filming You Are So Beautiful there. The film, being directed by Frieder Schlaich, deals with a Latino immigrant family in Germany. Golden, who splits his time between the U.S. and Germany, is working with Andreas Robertz on their theater project Intimate Relations Project.

Blanca Vásquez
e-mailed us to let us know that she booked a TV commercial for the U.S. Census, where she played a pregnant young mom. As a result, she is now SAG-eligible. She also co-narrated (with Shari Peele and Cherise Boothe) the audiobook Jumped (written by Rita Williams-García), for which she received the following review: "The narrators give the characters flavor and texture, making them sound like genuine teens and making the narration all that much more believable."
