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.

Described as "an immersive theatrical experience", the production is written by Troy Deutsch, Peca Stefan, Zhu Yi (based on a concept by Ana Margineanu and Tamilla Woodard) and directed by Woodard, Margineanu, and France-Elena Damian (with assistant direction by Camilla Pérez). The production is scheduled to take place in March at the Campus of The Cathedral Church of Saint John The Divine, located in the West Harlem/Manhattanville area of Manhattan. She will then follow both of these productions up with a co-starring role in Ed Cardona, Jr.'s Bamboo in Bushwick.
