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.

Rita Moreno, shown at left, will return to the boards in Rita Moreno: Life Without Makeup, a show (with music) created especially for the Oscar, Emmy, Grammy and Tony Award winner. Written by Tony Taccone and directed by David Galligan, the show will include dancers Ray García and Salvatore Vassallo and be music directed by César Cancino and choreographed by Lee Martino. Performances begin in September and run through the end of October at the Roda Theatre at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre in Berkeley, California.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, shown at right, and Quiara Alegría Hudes's hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical In The Heights opened in the Phillipines. The musical is scheduled for a September run at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium in Manila, NCR, is directed by Bobby Garcia and stars Nyoy Volante, K-La Rivera and Jay Glorioso in the cast, among others.

John Leguizamo's Ghetto Klown will play the United Kingdom this fall. The solo show, conceived and written by Leguizamo (shown at left) and directed by Fisher Stevens will follow up its Broadway and Los Angeles engagements with an October and November run at Charing Cross Theatre in London, England.
