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.

Antonio García, Jr. is performing in The Derek Jeter Plays. Billed as "six plays and one song" devoted to the famed New York Yankee shortstop, the writers include David Javerbaum, Adam Schlesinger, Bo Wilson, Robin Rothstein, Susan Barsky, Paul Buzinsky, Mike Folie and Tony Sportiello; the directors include Debra Henri, Julie Kramer, Myles Kenyon Rowland, Merry Beamer, Debra Whitfield and Tony Sportiello.
