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 listed below in boldface.

Modesto Lacén, shown at right, recreated his role as Roberto Clemente (from the musical DC-7: The Roberto Clemente Story) to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 3000th (and last) hit of Roberto Clemente's career. He came out in uniform and ran the bases of Pittsburgh's PNC Park where he was met by Clemente's widow and children. To read an article (in Spanish) by Lester Jiménez in the Puerto Rican newspaper Primera Hora about it, click here.

Caridad de la Luz
(also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja) performed at NBC Studios in New York for an industry event commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month.

Fernando Gamarra, shown at left, booked a SAG-AFTRA industrial pharmaceutical commercial after he read about the casting notice on the e-mail announcements HOLA sends to its members and self-submitting.

Rodney Roldán
will be seen on an episode of "The FBI Files" (The Discovery Channel) on Friday, October 5, 2012 (check local listings).

Emely Grisanty will star in the solo show Hijo del ruiseñor in October. Written and directed by Walter Ventosilla, it will be presented at La Casa de la Cultura Navarrete-NY in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood.

Esteban Rodríguez Alverio
will soon be seen in Nikolai Gogol's The Inspector General. Adapted and directed by Rob Barron, the play will be presented in December at Aaron Davis Hall, located in Manhattan's Harlem neighborhood.

Sosa James, Jr., shown at right, booked a short film (produced by UNARAZA Productionz [sic] and CoreTempArts) after he saw the casting notice in the daily e-mail announcements that HOLA sends to its members and self-submitting.

Alberto Bonilla
will next hit the boards in a production of William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Produced by the Riverside Theater, the play is directed by Cristin Adams and will have an October run at the Riverside Church in Manhattan's Morningside Heights neighborhood.
