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.

Roger González, shown at right, booked a role in the Ricardo Bacallao short film The Wine Taster. He booked the gig after meeting the director at an HOLA event and then auditioning for him shortly afterward. The film also stars Manny Alfaro, Mateo Gómez and Mariana Parma (see below), and is scheduled to start filming soon in Glen Cove, New York.

Mariana Parma (see above) acted in the short film The Romancer (written and directed by Lucas Sachs), currently shooting in New York City.

Rénoly Santiago is acting in the film The Networker. Written by Bill Brady, Richard Buyer and Victor Ribaudo, and directed by John A. Gallagher, the feature film stars Sean Young, Stephen Baldwin, William Reiner and Danny Doherty. The film is currently lensing in New York City.

2014 HOLA Award recipient Marco Antonio Rodríguez, shown at left, was interviewed by Lynda Baquero on the NBC New York program “Visiones”, where he spoke about the HOLA Award-winning play he wrote and in which he stars, Barceló con hielo (currently running at Repertorio Español, located in the Rose Hill neighborhood of Manhattan). For more information about the production, which has extended its run at Repertorio Español through February 2015, click herehere or here. To see the interview, which references the production's four 2014 HOLA Awards, click here.
