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, is acting in the play Diorama. Written by Jennifer Brown Stone and David S. Stone (based on an original story and characters by Jennifer Brown Stone) and directed by David S. Stone, the play is being produced by Merlin Productions for a May and June run at the Lion Theatre at Theatre Row in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. The offbeat romantic comedy also stars Hunter Canning, Bob Greenberg, Victoria Mack and Susan Louis O'Connor.

Rafael Bello and A.B. Lugo were cast in The Devil's Breath. Written and directed by Julián Juaquín (and shot by Carlos Chiossone), it is currently filming in New York City and stars Susana Pérez and Monte Bezell. Bello, shown at left, was cast based on an HOLA referral.

José Roldán, Jr. will be performing his self-penned award-winning solo show Father Forgive Me For I Have Sinned (directed by Dante Albertie) at the Social Lite Lounge in the Humboldt Park section of Chicago, Illinois, as part of the Culture Creator Series.
