HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Repertorio Español is set to premiere a new production of Así que pasen cinco años (When Five Years Pass) by Federico García Lorca. Directed by René Buch, the play is set to premiere in January 2011 at Repertorio's eponymous theater in the Rose Hill section of Manhattan with Ricardo Barber, Patricia Becker, Zulema Clares, Luis Carlos de La Lombana, Raúl Durán, Ana Grosse, Gerardo Gudiño, Gabriel Gutiérrez, Eric Robledo and Marcelo Rodríguez in the cast.

Repertorio Español is also set to premiere the Spanish language premiere of En el tiempo de las mariposas (In The Time of the Butterflies). Based on Julia Álvarez's novel, the stage adaptation is by Caridad Svich and directed by José Zayas. Scheduled to begin performances in February 2011, the play will be presented at Repertorio's eponymous theater with Rosie Berrido, Zulema Clares, Dalia Davi, María Helan, Flor de Liz Pérez, Teresa Pérez-Frangie and Fermín Suárez in the cast.

Alberto Bonilla is slated to direct Dolores and North of Providence, two one-act plays by Edward Allan Baker. Scheduled for a January-February run by Teatro LATEA at its namesake theater in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in the Loísaida neighborhood of Manhattan, the show will have Rachel Cornish, Sat Charn Fox, John Golaszewski and Rebecca Nyahay in the cast.
