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.

Gilbert Cruz, shown at right, just finished filming an episode for the upcoming season of "House of Cards" (Netflix) in Baltimore, Maryland, where he played the mayor of El Paso, Texas. The episode was directed by Golden Globe winner and Emmy Award-nominated actress (and star of "House of Cards") Robin Wright.

Teatro SEA is presenting La Gloria: A Latin Cabaret. Created and directed by Manuel A. Morán, the evening honors the music of Cuba's La Sonora Matancera, and its three singers: Celia Cruz, Myrta Silva, and Daniel Santos. The production stars Jeannie Sol, Morán and Milteri Tucker, and will have performances in November at SEA's eponymous theater, located in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood. This production is a collaboration with Cuba's internationally acclaimed puppet theater troupe, Teatro de Las Estaciones. For more information about the production, click here.

Many HOLA members appear in the latest blog from Héctor Luis Sin Censura (written by 2015 HOLA Awards recipient Héctor Luis Rivera), where their latest artistic triumphs and travails are being promoted. The HOLA members (and Friends of HOLA) mentioned include Ely Beri, Pablo García Gámez, Manolo García Oliva, A.B. Lugo, and Raúl Rivera. To read the blog, which is in Spanish, click here.
