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.

Luis Salgado, shown at right, was the subject of a profile in Puerto Rican newspaper El Nuevo Día, where he was interviewed being in the cast of the Broadway show Rocky: The Musical (written by Stephen Flaherty, Lynn Ahrens and Thomas Meehan, based on the screenplay of the Academy Award-winning film by Sylvester Stallone). The musical is directed by Alex Timbers (with choreography by Kelly Devine and boxing choreography by Stephen Hoggett) and is currently in previews at the Winter Garden Theatre.
