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.

Eduardo Leáñezshown at right, in character, was interviewed with co-writer Patrick E. Horrigan in Bensonhurst Bean blog, where he spoke about his solo show You Are Confused! (written by Leáñez and Horrigan and directed by Rosalie Purvis), currently running in June at the Henry Warren Theater, located in the Bath Beach section of Brooklyn.

HOLA Executive Board President Manolo García Oliva, pictured left, in the photo at left with Consul General for Cultural Affairs Juan José Herrera de la Muela, received the Officer's Cross of the Royal Order of Isabella the Catholic from the Cónsul General de España en Nueva York (on behalf of Spain's King Felipe VI) in a ceremony which took place on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 at Repertorio Español (located in Manhattan's Rose Hill neighborhood). García Oliva received the civil order of merit due to his tireless efforts of promoting Latin American and Hispanic arts and culture. As part of the ceremony, an excerpt of the Pedro Calderón de la Barca zarzuela El laurel de Apolo was presented. Directed by Estefanía Fadul (with original music by Marios Aristopoulos and choreography by Nikol Peterman), the presentation featured cast members Venuz Delmar, Gerardo Gudiño, Inma Heredia and Franco Yáñez.
