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.

Ana Grosse, shown at right, booked a Burlington Coat Factory commercial after the casting director saw her profile on the HOLA online talent directory.

Ayanery Reyes recently completed a production of Clifford Odets' classic play Waiting for Lefty. Presented by the Harold Clurman Laboratory Theatre Company and directed by Don K. Williams, the show, which had a September and October run in Los Angeles, travels to New York for three performances in March at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in the Flatiron district of Manhattan.

Tony Chiroldes
and Robin De Jesús returned to Broadway for one night to perform at Broadway Backwards 7. The show, which happens every year (and is in its seventh incarnation), took place at the Al Hirschfeld Center and was a benefit for Broadway Cares Equity-Fights AIDS and The Center.

Caridad De La Luz (also known by her nom de poésie et de musique La Bruja) is performing at the Young Roots: Non-Demonizational Nation [sic] event. The event, which bills itself as "where spiritual music lives again" features her performing the music of Celina González and Reutilio López as backed up by trombonist Willie Álvarez and the band Los Brujos Locos. The performance will take place on Friday, March 9, 2012 at the Hostos Performing Arts Center in the Mott Haven section of the South Bronx. To buy tickets, click here.
