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.

Luis Salgado, shown at right, was profiled in the Puerto Rican daily newspaper El Nuevo Día, where he spoke of his life and career (which includes performing eight times a week on Broadway in the musical On Your Feet!: the Story of Gloria and Emilio Estefan, which boasts a book by Alexander Dinelaris, lyrics and music by the Estefans and the Miami Sound Machine). To read the article, which is in Spanish, click here.

Roberto Sanábria starred in a workshop production of Fru Mary. Written by Berioska Ipinza and directed by Stefano (Stebos) Boselli, the production was presented by LaMicro as part of its Summer Session 2016 festival, which took place in June at the 440 Studios Black Box Theater (located in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood). Also represented at the festival was Pietro González, whose work Reunion was also presented (which he also directed).

Angie Regina, shown at left, is performing as the title character in La danza de Mingó. Produced by Otro Teatro NY, the play is written by Haffe Serulle, co-stars Francis Mateo and Maité Bonilla, and directed by Billy Martin Mejía. The production was presented in June for a tour in the Dominican Republic as part of the ninth annual Festival Internacional de Teatro Santo Domingo (FITE 2016), with stops in the cities of Santo Domingo, Distrito Federal and Santiago de los Caballeros, Santiago, respectively.

Marco Antonio Rodríguez was interviewed by Isolda Peguero for her webseries "El Rincón de Isolda", where he spoke about his life and career as an actor-playwright-director, with an emphasis on his award-winning play La Luz de un cigarrillo, which was recently presented in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
