HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting and performance gigs.

Lauren Vélez is returning to the boards in the solo show They Call Me La Lupe. Written by Luis Caballero and James Manos, Jr. and directed by Verónica Caicedo, the play deals with the tumultuous life of controversial Cuban songstress Victoria Guadalupe Yolí Raymond (aka La Lupe, La Yiyiyi and The Queen of Latin Soul). Produced by Teatro LATEA and Dura Vida Productions, the show is scheduled for a January run at LATEA's eponymous theater in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in the Loísaida neighborhood of Manhattan.

Mike Smith Rivera booked two radio and TV commercials (in English and Spanish) for Church's Chicken.

Wanda Arriaga and Gredivel Vásquez headline a remounting of Carlos Ferrari's El insólito caso de Mis' Piña Colada. Directed by René Buch and produced by Repertorio Español, the play, which also stars Iliana Guibert, Ricardo Hinoa, Mario Mattei and Rita Ortiz, is being presented for a December and January run at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theater in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.
