HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Daphne Rubin-Vega can currently be seen opposite Ethan Hawke, Natasha Lyonne, Becky Ann Baker, Thomas Guiry and Gordon Clapp in the off-Broadway play Blood From a Stone, the New Group's first production of its 2010-11 season. Written by Tommy Nohilly and directed by Scott Elliott (artistic director of the New Group) will continue performances through February 19, 2011 at the New Group’s home, the Acorn Theater at Theater Row in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Later in their season the New Group will be One Arm, based on a Tennessee Williams short story that also inspired an unproduced screenplay. The New Group is collaborating with the Tectonic Theater Company on the play, which is adapted by the production’s director, the Tectonic founder, Moisés Kaufman. The run is scheduled for May and June 2011 and casting is to be announced.

John Leguizamo will present his latest solo show, first in Chicago at the Royal George Theater in the beginning of February (under the name John Leguizamo Warms Up) before transferring it to Broadway under the name Ghetto Klown. Directed by Fisher Stevens, it will be presented for a limited 12-week run to begin previews February 21, 2011 at the Lyceum Theater and scheduled for an official opening on March 22, 2011.
