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.

Carlos A. González, shown at right, has been keeping himself quite busy artistically. Recent standup comedy gigs include sets at Nicks Comedy Stop in Boston and New York Comedy Club in (natch) New York. He will be performing at Ooba Lounge (in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn) on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. Appearances in January 2014 include Niko's (White Plains, New York on Friday, January 17) and Alamo Drafthouse (Yonkers, New York on Sunday, January 19). In addition, he just wrapped up filming Sounds Familiar (written and directed by Valeria Angel), where he stars with Marisol Carrere. For more information on this actor-comedian, click here or here.

The cast of the Karen Zacarías play Just Like Us (produced by and at the Denver Center Theater Company) was nominated for a 2013 BroadwayWorld Denver Award for Best Large Ensemble in a Play. The play features Adriana Gaviria, Cynthia Bastidas, Alma Martínez (shown clockwise from left) and 2013 HOLA Awards recipient Felix Solis in the cast. For more information, click here.

Vivienne Jurado has roles in two films–– Kissing Santa (written and directed by Stevie Glass) and Dirty Shield (written and directed by Edgar Jiménez), the latter currently in production.

Félix Hiciano just finished acting (and producing) the short film Frightened (written and directed by Amanda Hiciano).

Due to popular demand, the run of the play At The End of the Century has been extended. The play, written and directed by Aminta de Lara (with music by María Eugenia Atilano), is being produced by SinTeatro Intimus at Teatro LATEA, located in the Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural and Educational Center (home to HOLA) in the Loísaida neighborhood of Manhattan. The production stars Howard Collado, Marion Elaine and Robert Ramos. For more information, click here.
