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.

Jesica Levi, shown at right, will be singing on a bill that includes Lisa Yaeger, Ronni Faust, Warren Schein, and David Auxier-Loyola for the cabaret series Saturdays at Six. Hosted by Charles Baran, it will take place on Saturday, August 8, 2015 at Room 53, located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. For more information, click here.

On the heels of his successful collaboration with photographer Lester Blum, Vladimir Ríos will team up with him again on a new photo series, scheduled to premiere at a gallery show in time for World AIDS Day (Tuesday, December 1, 2015).
