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.

Soraya Padrao, shown at right, picked up a Helen Hayes Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Play (HELEN) for her work in Cervantes: El último Quijote (The Last Quixote) at the GALA Hispanic Theatre in Washington, District of Columbia. She was also nominated as part of the cast in the category of Outstanding Ensemble of a Play (HELEN). One of the country’s most prestigious cultural honors, the Helen Hayes Awards is the theater award named for the famed actress Helen Hayes (nicknamed the "First Lady of American theatre") to recognize excellence in professional theater in the Washington, D.C. area since 1983. The awards are divided to HELEN (non-Equity) and HAYES (Equity) groups. The award winners will be announced in May. To read the list of the other nominees, click here.
