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 December 2014-January 2015 issue of Esmeralda magazine (with 2014 HOLA Awards recipient and Broadway performer and triple threat Bianca Marroquín on the cover, shown at right) is chock full of HOLA members in its pages. They are listed below along with images of their corresponding articles (which are all in Spanish).

Manuel A. Morán was profiled and highlighted for his work as an actor, singer, writer, composer, puppeteer, director and producer (of the bilingual children and family theater company Society of the Educational Arts, also known as SEA, which he created while still a teenager in his native Puerto Rico). HOLA also gets a mention in the article as well.

Teresa Yenque, also mentioned on the cover, was interviewed in which she spoke on her long illustrious career which covers everything from Broadway to telenovelas to feature films and television series. She also spoke on moving from her native Perú to New York City and raising her two sons (one of whom is José Yenque, also an actor). Finally, she also gave advice to those who want to get into acting. Yenque recently received the Extraordinary Latin ACE Award for Distinction and Merit, the highest award given from the Asociación de Cronistas de Espectáculos de Nueva York.

Ana María Estrada was profiled where she spoke on being able to have two films in two different languages in which she acted have their premieres in two different cities in two different countries in two different continents in the span of two weeks. The films were Category 5 (written by E.M. McCoy and directed by Rob King), which starred Burt Reynolds and C. Thomas Howell, and had its premiere in Biloxi, Mississippi, U.S.A.; and La amante del libertador (written and directed by Roció Lladó), which starred Wendy Vásquez and Luis Galli, and had its premiere in Lima, Lima, Perú. She also spoke of her role as a producer (with Dakini Productions) and her recent Tumi USA Award.
