He stands on the stage of the Metropolitan Theater, begins to sing and immediately makes the audience hold their breath. Judith Cabral is one of the figures that accompanies Martin Bossi in Bossi Live Comedy, the work with which the artist is being presented on the Buenos Aires billboard. And he has a highlight in which he manages to display all his talent, earning himself a true ovation. How did he come to occupy that place? “It was for an audition, back in 2017. They told me that they were casting for singers and dancers, I showed up and stayed,” says the young woman in conversation with Infobae.

—Currently it has a very important place in the work…

—I feel that in all of Martín’s shows I stood out. When I booted into Bossi Master Show I started doing some things that were in the original script. But, as the years went by, it changed and I ended up participating in other shows. But that has to do with the trust that Bossi and his team have in me and what I do, that they allow me to play and have fun.

—Let’s agree that the public’s response supports that trust, right?

-Yeah. This year, for example, he called me to fill in for two weeks, because the girl who was there couldn’t. And, later, life made me stay in the work with a greater participation.

—How old is Judith?

-36 years.

—Married, single, children?

-I’m single and I do not have children.

—Taking into account Bossi’s fame, I have to ask him if he ever tried to seduce her…

—With Martín we have a very particular relationship, because I am also a gunfighter but I like something that amuses me. As if there is a game of seduction on both sides.

—The typical “chichoneo”?

-Clear. But it’s something we both do jokingly, so I couldn’t tell you if at some point he “threw the greyhounds” at me seriously. There was nothing explicit. Because what happens between us also has to do with what happens on stage and that magic that is generated when we act together.

—But, specifically, did something happen between you?

-No no no.

—Not even a touch or a start?

—Every time we went to eat or have something to drink, it was in a work context.

—Where were you born and how did your connection with music and acting begin?

—I was born in Capital Federal, in the Almagro neighborhood. And I liked the artistic when I was very little, when I went to the garden. I remember that, when I was about 4 years old, my parents took me to see the shows. Hugo Midón that occurred in the middle sector of Paseo La Plaza. One day the clowns came down from Alive and kicking and I said I wanted to do that. Then they sent me to study dance, first ballet, then jazz. And, when that was no longer enough, I went to the musical theater classes in the garden. From there I went to school Queen Reech and then I trained with Raul Cassinerio and Mariano Detrywhom I consider to be my angels in this, because they showed me what was happening outside with works like cat, Annie and other musicals. At age 11, I finally auditioned for The Fernandes Family and that’s how my artistic work began on a professional level.

—He was a child, did his family agree?

-Yes of course. I am an only child and in my house there was always a lot of love for the arts, although my parents were not dedicated to that. My mom, Laura, who is a psychologist, plays the piano. And my dad, Norbert, is a psychiatrist but has that little thing of art in his being. She always listened pink floyd, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minelli and I loved that music. Like the ABBA either Raphael. So they, my grandparents and my aunt supported me.

—But a girl who works in theater implies a particular dynamic at home…

—Yes, in fact, my mother changed jobs at that time to be able to accompany me to all the performances, because as a girl I couldn’t go to the theater or rehearsals alone. But they were with me at all times.

—Were you always clear about your direction or at some point did you think about following psychology, for example?

—I always knew that I had to study everything related to my instrument, such as dance, theater and singing. Luckily, my parents never suggested that I pursue a university career. At some point, perhaps, it crossed my mind that I wanted to be an architect. But the truth is that it was very difficult to study anything else in parallel to art because I didn’t have enough time or energy.

—So the dream of being an architect…

—It went away when I realized I wasn’t going to be able to handle it. I can like thousands of careers. But I think this also has to do with being an artist, right? Because you can like a lot of professions and the place where you can develop them is, precisely, on stage. Today I can be an architect, tomorrow a lawyer and thus have fun with everything I would have liked to be.

—Auditions are usually quite frustrating because, regardless of the talent someone may have, the issue is fitting the role and the person faces many “no’s.” How do you handle that situation?

—Now that I’m older and have more auditions, I take it a little differently. But, at the beginning, there was the frustration of not understanding why it wasn’t left. And it was saying: “I’m no good.” Today, however, I realize that it is not whether I am useful or not, but whether what I do works for them or not for what they are looking for. In other words, I am this and I have this to offer. But, then, you have to see what they have in mind for a certain character. And if your profile doesn’t work, it’s for that particular job and not for art.

—You have also had forays into some of Marcelo Tinelli’s programs. What was your experience like there?

—I participated in the Dancingsinging for the couple’s first gala Gabo Usandivaras and Becky Vaquez. And then I came in as a replacement for Lola Latorre in it Singingwhere I was only one program with Lucas Spadafora. In those television shows, I understand that discussion and conflict also come into play. And I just had a little unexpected crossing with Karina The Little Princess, which caused a scandal that I didn’t like. It was a comment that was misinterpreted and I ended up with an entire fandom against it, trying to explain to one by one how things had been.

—So he didn’t have a good time…

—At the time I didn’t realize that I was in a program where all of that is enhanced. Today, if I came back, I wouldn’t take it the same way. Just like what happens in auditions, that has to do with experience. So I would try not to get into a scandal.

—But you know that, beyond talent, many times these media moves are like a shortcut on the artist’s path to fame.

—I feel that the scandal doesn’t get you anywhere… I mean, it’s good for a minute, but that’s not where things are going. And I don’t like it at all. So I prefer to continue building my career on the other hand.

—In addition to being with Bossi, do you continue with your singing shows?

-Yes of course. And now I am as vocal director of a show called Open 24, that we are going to be premiering at the Picadilly Theatre. It is a Spanish work that my friend makes Santiago Palumbo, who bought the rights and called me to vocally direct it. So I’m venturing into a new task in my life that I’m very excited about.

The artist dreams of a career as a pop singer

—What would be your career aspiration?

—I would like to dedicate myself to music as a singer-songwriter. I have two songs on Spotify, I have my videos made very freely and with self-management. And I would love to be a pop singer, release an album and do recitals.

—You already said that nothing happens with Bossi, is he in a relationship?

—There is a person whom I really love very much and who has been with me for a while.

—Does he fall into the category of boyfriend or does he not have the title yet?

—I prefer to call him my boy…But, in addition to my family, I feel great support from him.

—Sometimes it is difficult to be with someone from the entertainment world, taking into account schedules, trips, seasons…

—It’s not a normal job. And I think, perhaps, if I were with an architect or a lawyer it would be more difficult. He’s a musician, so he understands my work a lot more. And, for now, I am very focused on my career so I am not thinking about formalizing it, although I don’t know what may happen later because I don’t rule out anything. But the point is that the link is not harmful to anyone and, therefore, it is essential that you are clear about what this is about.
