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.

María Cotto, shown at right, acted in the film Helen of T-Roy. Directed by Aureo Iván Cardona, the film will be screened at the International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival, to take place in November in New York City. For more information, click here. In addition, she performed comedy in September with Beverly Bonner and Raymond López at the Broadway Comedy Club, located in the theater district of midtown Manhattan. 

Howard Collado booked roles in the films Broken Wings and The Stranger (both written and directed by Daminico Lynch).

Due to popular demand, TEBA is once again presenting Alejandro Casona's Suicide is Prohibited in Springtime. Directed by Héctor Luis Rivera, the play stars A.B.
