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 names of HOLA members are in boldface.

East 3rd Productions is presenting a concert reading of Rob Santana's play My Night with Frida in June as the closing night of its ENTER: PLAYWRIGHT Theater Festival. Directed by Mark G. Cisneros, the presentation is scheduled to take place at the Theater @ 2 Great Jones, located in New York's NoHo neighborhood and features Athena Colón, Masha Mendieta, Jorge Ortiz, Stanton Powell and Charles Casano in the cast. (Mendieta nabbed the role after reading the casting notice in HOLA's daily e-mail announcements and submitting herself.)

Milteri Tucker will be represented twice on Sunday, June 12, 2011 for the National Puerto Rican Day Parade. First, her choreography will be showcased live on the telecast and she will also be a dancer for the salsa orchestra El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico.

Dominic Colón just finished filming an episode of "How To Make It In America" (HBO). In addition, he recently won the 2011 Bronx Recognizes Its Own (BRIO) Award for playwriting from the Bronx Council of the Arts for his play Crush.

Johary Ramos and Omar Pérez starred in the Pregones Theater tour of El apagón. Adapted by the short story "The Night We Became People Again" by José Luis González, the play was directed by Jorge B. Merced and most recently played Camden, New Jersey.

Bill Santiago will be performing standup comedy twice in New York this month. He will be performing for the Russell Ferber Foundation in Manhattan's West Village and will follow that up with a gig at the East Harlem's Children Book Festival with La Casa Azul bookstore in Manhattan's El Barrio neighborhood.
