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.

Lisann Valentín, shown at right, was just cast in the production The Church of Why Not. Produced by Theatre 167, the play was written by Camilo Almonacid, Jenny Lyn Bader and J. Stephen Brantley and directed (and conceived) by Ari Laura Kreith, it will be presented in February and March at The West End Theater, located in Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Allison Strong will perform with the Allison Strong Band on Friday, January 17, 2015 at the Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan's Loísaida neighborhood. For more information, click here.
