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.

Rénoly Santiago, shown at right, has been named artistic director of the CityKids Repertory Company (CityKids Rep).

Previous CityKids alums include Donald Adeosun Faison, Malik Yoba, Dash Mihok, Lauryn Hill, and Santiago himself. For more information about CityKids, click here.
