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.

The original cast and creative team of the musical Fun Home, a 2014 Pulitzer Prize finalist based on the graphic memoir by Alison Bechdel, will reunite for two special concert stagings at the College of Charleston in South Carolina in April to protest the attempts of South Carolina lawmakers to withdraw funding from the school for including the source material in its curriculum, due to its LGBTQ content. The musical, written by Jeanine Tesori and Lisa Kron, recorded a cast album and finished its run off-Broadway at the Public Theater/NYSF, where it is rumored to be eying a possible Broadway run. Directed by Sam Gold, the production also stars Michael Cerveris, Judy Kuhn, Beth Malone, Sydney Lucas, Alexandra Socha, Joel Pérez (shown at right), Griffin Birney, Roberta Colindrez and Noah Hinsdale in the cast.
