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, performance or similarly artistic gigs and/or recognition in the media. The names of HOLA members and Friends of HOLA are listed below in boldface. To see what other HOLA members are doing currently, click here.

Daniel Anthony Hidalgo, shown at left, was cast in the production of Guillén de Castro's play La fuerza de la costumbre (directed by Freddy Mancilla) based to an HOLA referral. The play from Spain's Golden Age (which also stars Mauricio Pita (see below), Nanda Abella, Juan Carlos Díaz and Ricardo J. Salazar) is set for an August and September run at Repertorio Español (as part of the 2013 Van Lier Young Directors Project) in the Rose Hill neighborhood of Manhattan. For more information, click here.

Susanna Guzmán, shown at right, will be performing in not one, but two plays at the New York International Fringe Festival (fringeNYC), taking place this August. The first one is Double Fault (written and directed by Troy Diana), while the second is Why You Beasting? (written by David Don Miller and directed by Markus Potter). The former will be presented at The Lynn Redgrave Theater (formerly known as the 45 Bleecker Theater) in Manhattan's NoHo neighborhood, while the latter will be presented at the Flamboyán Theater, located in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood. For more information, click here, here and here.

Mauricio Pita (see above) and Soraya Padrao filmed a television commercial for American Home Shield. One can see a still from the commercial at left.

The Bruno Irizarry film
200 cartas, will hit theaters in select movie theaters in Puerto Rico (where it was mostly filmed) starting on September 12, 2013. The film stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jaime Camil, Dayanara Torres, Mônica Steuer, Irizarry, Iris Chacón, Mayra Matos and Alfredo De Quezada. For more information, click here.
