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.

Pablo García Gámez, A.B. Lugo (also see below), Edna Lee Figueroa, and Edmi De Jesús were featured in the Entreactos y Telones column of the weekly New York newspaper La Voz Hispana– the former two for their work as playwright and director, respectively, in the recently shuttered production La vieja herida and the latter two for their work as actress/producer and actress, respectively, in the upcoming production of Joselo Arroyo's Máscaras afuera (directed by Gerardo Gudiño). Both productions are part of the FuerzaFest LGBTQ+ Fest, presented in May by the Hispanic Federation at the Julia De Burgos Performance and Art Center in Manhattan's El Barrio neighborhood.
