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.
Judy Torres, shown at right, will be one of the stars of the stage play Black Latina (written by Crystal Shaniece Román and directed by Verónica Caicedo). Torres received the audition for the role through an HOLA referral. She joins Teniece Johnson, Iman Richardson, Jenelle Simone, Anaridia Burgos, Roberta Little and Nubia Santos in the cast. The production will take place in September at Teatro LATEA, located in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood. For more information, click here, here or here. In addition, the recording artist and radio personality will be singing her hit tunes at the Copacabana Rooftop (located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan) on September 2, 2012 and at the Hoboken Italian Festival (in Hoboken, New Jersey) on September 7, 2012.
