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 and performance gigs. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are in boldface.

Laura Riveros, shown at left, booked a role in the workshop presentation of Occupy: The Musical (the product of a collaboration from members of the Primary Stages Einhorn School of Performing Arts) after reading about the casting notice in the HOLA e-mail announcements it sends to its members and self-submitting. The workshop of the musical (music by B.J. Gandalfo, Eric Grunin and Sean Harvilla; lyrics by David O. Dávila, Ed Levy, Robin Weiss and Leslie Wolfowitz; book by Nan Hoffman, Judith Leora, Levy and Rachael Migler) also features Ursula Anderman, Charles Barkdale, Sevan Green, Carly Menken, Nicholas Park, Walker Hare and Dávila in the cast and will be performed in May at ESPA @ Primary Stages Theater in the theater district in midtown Manhattan.
