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.

Elizardi Castro appeared with Emeline Ramos (shown right to left, in the photo at right) in the HOLAciudad! Orlando blog where his comedy video titled "Terapia de pareja: El 'laundry' ¿colores juntos o separados?" about whether a couple should wash articles of clothing together or separate them by colors and whites. To read the blog and see the accompanying video, which are both in Spanish (or rather, this time, in Spanglish), click here.

Angie Regina has joined the cast of the long-running show El Quijote. Adapted by Santiago García from the Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra novel, the production is directed by Jorge Alí Triana and is running at Repertorio Español, located in the Rose Hill neighborhood of Manhattan.

A.B. Lugo, shown at left, was interviewed for an article in NBC News, where he spoke about the proliferation of solo shows, where the HOLA Award-winning solo show Growing Up Gonzales (written and directed by Félix Rojas and performed by Andrés Chulisi Rodríguez), now running at the Medicine Show Theater in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen/Clinton neighborhood, was featured.

Jeannie Sol and Indra Palomo star in The 3 Pigettes & The Big Bad Lady Wolf/Las 3 cerditas y la loba feroz. An all-female adaptation of the children's musical Los 3 cerditos by Elsia Luz Cruz Torruellas and Manuel A. Morán, this version is adapted (with additional lyrics and music) by Morán in a bilingual version by him and Richard Marino, with new music and orchestations by Manuel Calzada (based on the original score) by Marvin Cardona. The production boasts the original choreography of Michael Capecci, is directed by Morán and will run in April at Teatro SEA, located in The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood.
