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.

Luis Salgado and Rafael Beatoshown above, left to right, were featured in a photo flash article from Broadway World where their role as director-choreographer and Sonny, respectively in the GALA Hispanic Theatre production of the Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes musical In The Heights were highlighted. That production will be the U.S. premiere of the Spanish-language version of the musical, which will run in April and May at GALA's eponymous theater in the North West area of Washington, District of Columbia. To read the article, which features rehearsal photography, click here.

Samuel Garnica
 and Mafer Rodríguez are co-starring in the play Ni que nos vayamos nos podemos ir. Written and directed by Lupe Gehrenbeck, the production will run in April at Santiago Rubio Hall in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. For more information, and to get tickets, click here (note that the majority of the information is in Spanish).

Héctor Luis Rivera is directing a production of Mirandolina
, his adaptation of Carlo Goldoni's La posadera (also known as The Mistress of the Inn). The play, produced by TEBA, will star Aileene Pérez and be presented in June as part of the Festival de Teatro Hispano del Comisionado at El Comisionado Dominicano de Cultura en EEUU (CoDoCul) in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood.

A.B. Lugo and Emilio Delgado have co-starring roles in the television series "West of the City". Created and executive produced by Arian Blanco, its proof of concept video was shipped to Amazon for consideration. The project has since graduated to the “Deciding” phase on the Amazon Studios Platform. Out of 16,800+ submissions on the platform, "West of the City" has trended #1 for 26 weeks and only the top 3-5% make it to the "Deciding" phase (the next step is "Offer"). To see the proof of concept video (and to rate it), click here.
