HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs.

Éric-Dominique Pérez's self-penned solo show El Gringuito was announced as the winner of Teatro LATEA/Caicedo Productions' The ONE Festival. The festival was such that the audience voted for their favorite play. Directed by A.B. Lugo with assistant direction by Bobby Baker and stage management by Lisandra Sánchez Rivera Payán, the show will be presented at Teatro LATEA for a future weeklong run as a result of winning the festival.

Mónica Delgado, Freia Canals, Milteri Tucker, Gabriela García and Luis Salgado participated in The Easter Bonnet competition. It is one of the major fundraisers for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA), the others being The Gypsy of the Year competition, Broadway Bares, Broadway Bears and Annual Flea Market and Grand Auction. This year's Easter Bonnet took place at Broadway's Minskoff Theatre.

Caridad De La Luz was selected to be the La Madrina Juvenil (Official Godmother of the Youth) at the 54th National Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday, June 12, 2011 in New York.

Rodney Roldán e-mailed us to let us know that he booked roles in The Biography Channel program "Celebrity Close Calls" and a SAG new media film called The Double Con (directed by George LaJara and co-starring, written and produced by Alvin Hysong).

Issy Tavares let us know that he has completed co-executive producer duties on the film The Machine. It stars Eren Yar, Clarissa Thibeaux and Danny Morris and is co-written and directed by Michael C. Poole. The film is in post-production and headed for the film festival circuit.
