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.

Pablo Andrade, Raúl Rivera, and Pablo García Gámez, shown clockwise from top left, were featured in the Héctor Luis Sin Censura blog (written and edited by Héctor Luis Rivera) for each of their current and/or upcoming projects. Andrade was noted for teaching (with María Fontanals) the first Spanish-language acting class at HB Studio in New York; Rivera was lauded for the creation of his new theater company, Coquí Theater; García Gámez was recently designated as a delegate of the Centro Latinoamericano de Creación e Investigación Teatral (CELCIT) in New York City.
