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.

Nick Luisshown at right, co-starred in Eternal Flame: The Ballad of Jessie Blade. Written by Tommy Jamerson and Josh Julian, the play was directed by Alex Acevedo and presented in March by The AlphaNYC Theater Company at the Corner Office Theater in the Times Square Arts Center, located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Luis Salgado performed at the Cabaret Cares event Everlasting Love. Hosted by Doreen Montalvo, the event's musical director was Lon Hoyt, and consisted of performances by the cast of the Broadway musical On Your Feet!: The Story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan (book by Alexander Dinelaris and music by Gloria and Estefan and Miami Sound Machine; directed by Jerry Mitchell and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo). The event was a benefit for Help Is On The Way Today, and took place on Sunday, March 6, 2016 at The Metropolitan Room located in the Flatiron District of Manhattan.

Just received a check for $500.

Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much you can get by taking paid surveys online...

So I took a video of myself getting paid $500 for taking paid surveys to set the record straight.
