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.

Members Plinio Villablanca and Victor Cruz will appear in IATI Theater's newest production Eyes That Don't See, Corazón Que No Siente. Written by Michael Leon and directed by Victoria Collado, the play is a tribute and a reclamation of the American family dramas. The play straddles two worlds that are at complete odds with each other. As the main character is grappling with her role in society and in her family as a first generation Cuban-American, the style of the play begins to shift in order to embody her inner struggle. The play draws influences from Arthur Miller, Eugene O’Neill, Maria Irenes Fornes and José Rivera.

Performance will go from June 8th to June 10th. Also in the cast, Lina Sarrello*, Ashley Alvarez, Jonny Rios, Jezabel Montero*, Matt McDonald, Rene Granado, and Adriana Gaviria* (* Appearing Courtesy of the Actors' Equity Association). For more information, click here
