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.

Directed by José Roldán, Jr., the play will be presented in July as part of Lehman Summerworx Festival at Lehman Stages, located in the Bedford Park area of the Bronx. (She booked the role after reading about the casting notice that HOLA sends to its members in its e-mail announcements and self-submitting.)
