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 listed below in boldface.

Edna Lee Figueroa, shown at left, booked a role in the workshop of the Michael Bettencourt play The Sin Eater. Directed by Sue Lawless, the show also features Nichole Donjé, Chiara Montalto and Alexander Stine, and will have a June workshop as part of Theater Resources Unlimited's 2012 TRU Voices New Plays Series. It will take place at the Roy Arias Studios and Theaters in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. Figueroa got the role after reading about the audition in the e-mail announcements that HOLA sends to its members and submitting herself.

The People's Theatre Project is presenting a workshop of the play On the 1 Train. Written by Paola "Pie" Soto, the workshop is part of Inspired By..., a festival of new plays out of the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan and will take place in June at the historic national landmark Morris-Jumel Mansion. On the 1 Train is directed by María Aponte and features Elle de Amor, A.B. Lugo, Sevans Martínez and Fidel Vicioso in the cast. Ms. de Amor, shown at right, was cast in the project through an HOLA referral. Plays written by Kimberly Barrante, Lina Sarrello and Carlos J. Serrano will be featured at the festival.

Rodney Roldán appeared on the series premiere of "Evil, I" (Investigation Discovery).

Mônica Steuer booked an industrial film for Laureate Education.

Elaine Del Valle and Ed Trucco booked a national commercial for Little Debbie in both English and Spanish.

Alejandro Moscoso will appear in Shadows, the Musical. Written by Eidan Lipper and Isaac Cruz and directed by Lipper, it will have a June run at the Little Times Square Theater in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. A trailer for the show (in which Moscoso is the first face to be seen) can be seen below.


Mónica Delgado was involved in a flash mob in the rotunda of New York's Pennsylvania Station in commemoration of Amtrak's National Train Day where the dancers performed to train-themed songs. The video can be seen below (she is wearing the green shirt). For more information about National Train Day, click here.
