HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to “gossip”. In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members or Friends of HOLA who are getting acting, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Luis Salgado, shown at right, was featured in Broadway World, where the article highlighted his recent Best Director award at the closing ceremony of the 2015 Venus/Adonis Thespis Festival for his work on the Catherine Hurd-Vatrena King musical Zuccotti Park. In addition, it mentioned his upcoming directing gig in Puerto Rico, where he will direct an all-HOLA member cast of Éric-Dominique Pérez, Javier E. Gómez and Emmanuelle Bordas in the Spanish-language and Puerto Rican debut of David Mamet's Speed-the-Plow, which will take place in August at El Corralón de San José in Viejo San Juan. In addition, he will return to the Great White Way with a role in the upcoming musical On Your Feet!, written by Alexander Dinelaris with music by Gloria and Emilio Estefan. The musical will be directed by Jerry Mitchell, choreographed by Sergio Trujillo and open in October 2015 at Broadway's Marquis Theatre (after an out-of-town tryout in June and July at Chicago's Oriental Theatre).
