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.

Loren Escandón, shown at right, besides being an actor, dancer and writer, has added a new job, that of journalist. She now writes a column for Viva Colorado. For more information, click here.

Izzy Ruiz booked a role in an episode of "Nurse Jackie" (Showtime).

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, Eliseo Román, Doreen Montalvo, Mandy González, Chris Jackson, Tony Chiroldes, Blanca Camacho, Rogelio Douglas and Luis Salgado, among others. Tickets are on sale through Telecharge. A surplus of proceeds from ticket sales 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.

Josean Ortiz
and Amneris Morales will star in La última plena que bailó Luberza. Based on the short story by Manuel Ramos Otero, and adapted and directed by Ortiz, the production deals with the life of Isabel La Negra, a madam of a brothel in Puerto Rico and will have a January run at the Corralón de San José in Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico.
