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.

Emilio Delgado, shown at right, booked the role of Claudius in Hamlet, Prince of Cuba (adapted from the William Shakespeare classic by Michael Donald Edwards with a Spanish translation by Nilo Cruz and directed by Edwards) through an HOLA referral. The show will take place at Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, Florida for a March through May run. For more information, click here.

Bring It On: The Musical just opened its national tour at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles, California. Andy Blankenbuehler directs and choreographs the production, which features a book by Jeff Whitty, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, music by Tom Kitt, lyrics by Amanda Green, and musical supervision by Alex Lacamoire. The show unfolds in the high-stakes world of competitive cheerleading. To see photos from opening night, click here.

Raúl Esparza is currently workshopping the musical Leap of Faith. Based on the Steve Martin and Debra Winger film directed by Richard Pearce and written by Janus Cercone, the musical has a libretto by Cercone and Warren Leight with songs by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater and directed by Christopher Ashley. The producers aim to get the musical on Broadway. He most recently won the L.A. Ovation Award for this role. For information on the award, click here.

José Yenque
has just completed work on four films: Lost Revolution (written and directed by Michael J. Narváez), Hearts of Men (written and directed by Kenneth Castillo), Mamitas (written and directed by Nicholas Ozeki) and Freeloaders (written by Dan Rosen and Dave Gibbs and directed by Rosen).
