HOLA Member Bochinche

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

Gloribell Mercado, shown at left, booked a role in Albert Franco's film Cold Summer after the director spotted her headshot on the HOLA online directory. The film starts shooting later this month.

José Roldán, Jr. will present his self-penned solo show Father, Forgive Me For I Have Sinned. Directed by Dante Albertie, the show is scheduled for a July run at The Studio Theater at Lehman College, located in the Bedford Park area of the Bronx.

Eduardo Leáñez will present his self-penned solo show ¡Tú estás confundido! Scheduled for a July run, the show will take place at the Sala Don Iván García Guerra in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.

Joe Rodríguez and Jayson Simba are scheduled to appear in Imperfect in Happiness. A collection of edgy, fast-paced, comedic scenes, solo pieces, music and sketch comedy works written by Bobby Holder, Brett Epstein, Jay Boyer, Tina Xenos, Craig Dourmashkin and Muhammad Bilal (and directed by Holder), the production will take place in June at The Abingdon Main Stage Theater, located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan.

Antonio García, Jr. can be seen in a webisode of the web series "Dates & Nuts" from Behind the Fridge Productions. The webisode is below.
