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.

Alberto Bonilla, shown at right, was featured in an article in AM New York, where it spoke of his helming a production of William Shakespeare's Richard III (produced by The Queens Players and running February and March at the Secret Theatre in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens) and the production's costume designer, Sue Waller. To read the article, click on the photo of the article at above left. For more information on the production, click here.

José Antonio Melián can soon be seen in Marla and Her Prayers. Written by Kim Merrill and directed by Elysa Marden, the New Perspectives Theatre Company (NPTC) production will be presented in March at NPTC's eponymous space in the Fashion District of midtown Manhattan. For more information, click here. He will follow this up with a role in Raquel Almazán's play Café. He booked the role after seeing the casting in the daily announcements HOLA sends to its members and self-submitting. Directed by Elena Araoz, the production will be presented in April at Columbia Stages as part of its Columbia MFA Theatre program at Columbia University's Schapiro Theatre, located in the West Harlem/Manhattanville section of Manhattan. For more information on the production, click here or here.

Lisann Valentín is currently directing the short film One Quiet Night (which she also wrote).

Milena Dávila is part of the video cast of the production Philosophy for Gangsters. Written and directed by Liz and Barry Peak, the play started in February and runs through March at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row in the midtown Manhattan. For more information, click here.
