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.

Elaine Del Valle, shown at right, just booked a role in A Change of Heart, a comedy feature starring James Belushi, Kathy Najimy, William Levy and Gloria Estefan. The film is written by Luis Santeiro and directed by Kenny Ortega. The feature starts shooting in Miami, Florida in late January.

Daphne Rubin-Vega will be presenting her self-penned show, Frequently Unanswered Questions (FUQs) at the Cutting Room (in Manhattan's Rose Hill/Koreatown area) on Monday, February 3, 2014. For more information, click here.

Éric-Dominique Pérez, shown at left, has been garnering a lot of press for the Puerto Rican debut of his self-penned solo show El Gringuito. Directed by A.B. Lugo (and assistant directed by Billy Martin Mejía), the production is taking place in mid-January at El Corralón de San José in Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico as part of the Festival de la Calle San Sebastián. He has appeared in the Puerto Rican newspapers El Nuevo Día and El Vocero, respectively, and had a radio interview (with Mr. Lugo) for "El Programa de Susa y Epifánio" on WAIC 740AM.
