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 and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are in boldface.

Marco Antonio Rodríguez's award-winning play La luz de un cigarrillo returns to New York in not just one, but in two productions. The first production will take place in September at Lehman Stages in the Bedford Park area of the Bronx. The production, which won five HOLA Awards, is also directed by Rodríguez, shown at left, will also feature the original cast, comprising all HOLA members: Susanna Guzmán, Ismael Cruz Córdova, Arisleyda Lombert and Teresa Yenque.
