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. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Éric-Dominique Pérez, shown at right, is currently in Viejo San Juan for the Puerto Rican debut of his self-penned solo show El Gringuito. Directed by A.B. Lugo (and assistant directed by Billy Martin Mejía), the production is taking place in mid-January at El Corralón de San José as part of the Festival de la Calle San Sebastián. He made a second appearance (with Mr. Lugo)on the radio show "El Programa de Susa y Epifanio" on WAIC 740AM and was highlighted in the Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Día. To read that article (which is in Spanish) or for more information about the production, click here and here.

Michael Díaz (also known by his nom de comédie Juan Bago), shown at left, was featured in the popular Dominican blog Remolacha, where the recent viral video parody by Juan Bago and O, "Lotion Girl", was featured and highlighted. To read the blog (which is in Spanish) and to see the video (which is in English), click here. In addition, he booked a Jackson Hewitt commercial.
