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.

Josean Ortiz, shown at right, was profiled in an article from the Fundación Nacional para la Cultura Popular (popularly known as PRPop, it was created by the Puerto Rican Department of State) where the show he adapted from Manuel Ramos Otero’s short story, La última plena de Luberza, was highlighted and reviewed. The production also starred Amneris Morales, was directed by Ortiz, and finished a run in February at the Corralón de San José in Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico. To read the article (which is in Spanish), click here.

Terracino, shown at left, was nominated for a 2013 TLA Gaybie Award for Best Director for his award-winning feature film Elliot Loves (starring stars Elaine Del Valle, Robin De Jesús, Cedric Leiba, Monte Bezell, Judy Torres, Denia Brache, Johnathan Cedano, Elena Goode, Alfredo Narciso, George Ruiz, Dalia Davi, Bobby DeJesús and Fabio Costaprado). The winners, selected by online audience, will be announced on April 15, 2013. For more information or to vote for Terracino as Best Director, click here. In addition, the film is screening in mid-March at the Prague International Film Festival in Prague, Czech Republic. For more information, click here.

just booked a hosting gig for the television program “Talk of the Town” (B4U).

Due to popular demand from their run in March, Teatro Experimental Blue Amigos (TEBA) will remount Ignacio Sarachaga's Mefistófeles (Parodia) in April. Adapted and directed by Héctor Luis Rivera, the show will continue its run in Teatro Soy (located in Manhattan's Washington Heights area) and features Kathy Tejada, Madelin Hierro, Damiana Reyes, Eddy Jiménez, Emir Cruz and Rivera in the cast.

Lucio Fernández
interviewed Ángel Premier Solís on his local television talk show “Live on Stage”. The episode (which is in English, Spanish and Spanglish) can be seen by clicking on the video below (HOLA and the HOLA Awards receives mention starting at about 18:50 of the video).
