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.

Abdel González shot a commercial for New York Lotto.

Jesús E. Martínez starred in My Superhero, Roberto Clemente. Written by Manuel A. Morán (book, co-lyrics, co-music) and Alejandro Zuleta (co-lyrics, co-music), it was directed by Morán. The show, recipient of two 2014 HOLA Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Technical Production/Design, was presented in September at the Detroit Institute of the Arts in Detroit, Michigan. The play features puppet, set and animation design by 2014 HOLA Awards recipient José López Alemán and choreography by 2014 HOLA Awards recipient Daniel Soto, and also starred Jorge Castilla, Ann Flanigan and Chris Williams in the cast.

Walter Krochmal recorded the Spanish-language audiobook version of Nelson Mandela's autobiography Long Walk To Freedom (El largo camino hacia la libertad). This audiobook version, in addition to being for sale, will be housed in The Library of Congress in Washington, District of Columbia.
