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.

Aileene Pérez, shown at right, is joining the cast of the Carlos Velis play San Salvador después del eclipse. Produced by United Productions and directed by Ricardo J. Salazar, it will be presented in May at the V Festival del Comisionado Dominicano at the Comisionado Dominicano de Cultura en EEUU, located in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood. She joins the all-HOLA member cast of Natalia Ivana EscobarJorge Luis Figueroa and Franco Yáñez. For more information, click here or here. [Blogger's note: Pérez was cast after the director-producer saw her profile on the HOLA online directory of talent and called her in to audition (as was the rest of the cast).]
