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.

Edna Lee Figueroa and Edmi De Jésus, shown, in character, from left to right (or is that top to bottom?), were featured in the Reflectores Citadinos column of the New York weekly newspaper La Voz Hispana, where it talked of the pair's upcoming presentation of the play Santa Bárbara es una femme fatale. The two-hander was written by Camila Monclova and Mariana Monclova and will be directed by Jorge Dieppa and presented in September at the ArtSpoken Performing Arts Center in Miami, Florida.
