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, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface.

Iván Camilo, shown at right, was the subject of a profile in the Dago Sánchez Blog, where he speaks on his career and his starring role in the film Under My Nails (currently available for viewing on HBO GO). For more information, click here.

Ismael Cruz Córdova is currently in Puerto Rico shooting the feature film In The Blood (directed by John Stockman and starring Danny Trejo, Amaury Nolasco, Luis Guzmán and Gina Carano). For more information, click here.

Caridad de la Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja), shown at right, was the Featured Artist in the December 2, 2012 issue of the Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Día.

The Lin-Manuel Miranda-Quiara Alegría Hudes musical In The Heights is returning to New York for a one-night-only benefit. It will be performed in concert version in the upper Manhattan neighborhood where the production takes place-- Washington Heights. Simply titled In The Heights: In Concert, it will take place at The United Palace of Cultural Arts on Monday, February 11, 2013 and was presented by The Broadway League's Viva Broadway initiative. The concert will feature many of the cast members of the original Broadway and first national tours, including Miranda, Karen Olivo, Olga Merediz, Robin De Jesús, Janet Dacal, Mandy González and Chris Jackson, among others. Tickets will go on sale Friday, December 14, 2012 through Telecharge. A surplus of ticket sales proceeds will go towards The Broadway League's Family First Nights, a nationwide program specifically designed to encourage at risk families to attend theater on a regular basis and to local arts programs in Washington Heights.
