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.

Manuel Morán can currently be seen playing Cuban journalist Ramiro Martínez in the off-Broadway musical DC-7: The Roberto Clemente Story (written by Luis Caballero and Harold Gutiérrez and directed by Caballero). The show, which also stars Modesto Lacén, Josean Ortiz, Lorraine Vélez and Omar Pérez, is currently showing at the Puerto Rican Traveling Theatre in the theater district in midtown Manhattan.
