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.

Luis Salgado is directing Pushing Daisy. Written by Lauren Epsenhart, the production is part of The Planet Connections Theatre Festivity, and is scheduled for a June run at the Gene Frankel Theatre in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood. The cast includes Elysia Segal, Doreen Montalvo, Ron Bopst, Chris Glehm and Olga Merediz.

Theater for the New City (TNC) is presenting Slums of Neverland. Written and directed by Deeon Brown, the play stars J.A. Acevedo and Zahaira Curiel and will take place at TNC's eponymous theater in Manhattan's East Village.

Jean-Marc Berne was recently cast as the Grand Prix Commentator in the Spanish-language dubbed version of Pixar's film Cars 2 (directed by John Lasseter and Brad Lewis).

Teatro IATI is presenting their director's lab showcase. Facilitated by Martín Balmaceda, the evening will take place at IATI's namesake theater in Manhattan's East Village and present excerpts of plays by Ángel H. Romero, José I. Cabrujas, Griselda Gambaro and Alejandra Pizarnik. The directors are Cruz Chino, Andrés Correa G., Ethel Fisher and Leni Méndez and the actors include Julio Ortega, Antonio Rodríguez, Míriam Cruz, Wínston Estévez, Lissette Espaillat, Sofiane Madi and Laura Vagnoni.
