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.

Jorge Luis Figueroa, shown at right and also see below, was cast in a production of William Shakespeare's Othello, as a result of a casting notice he received from HOLA and him self-submitting. The production, directed by Daniel Echevarria, will be presented in August at the Davenport Theatre, located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. For more information, click here and here.

Rafael Beato, Rina Mejía, Johanna Tolentino and Gus Schaar star in the short film El pasaje (written by Noel Núñez Caba and Academy Award winning screenwriters Alexander Dinelaris and Nicolás Giacobone, and directed by Núñez Caba). The film is expected to hit the film festival circuit.
