HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip". In this sense, we use it to highlight 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.

Danny Mendoza's documentary Spectrum of Hope is currently online at SundanceNow Doc Club. The documentary (co-produced and directed by Mendoza, shown at right), which deals with ten musical theater students, their families, and their teachers as they go on a journey from their special needs school in New York City's Lower East Side to the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, was posted in commemoration of National Autism Awareness Day.

Lucio Fernández is co-starring in the short film Primero muerto (written and directed by Lilybel Powell), which is currently shooting in New York City.

Edna Lee Figueroa, shown at left, in character, was featured in the Héctor Luis Sin Censura blog (written by Héctor Luis Rivera), where her role as actress, co-director, and co-producer in the two-hander Santa Bárbara es una femme fatale was highlighted. Written by Mariana Monclova and Camila Monclova, the two-hander will be co-produced and co-directed by Figueroa and Edmi De Jesús (who also co-stars) for Producciones El Barrio, and will have its NYC premiere in April as part of the first annual Festival de Comedias TEBA, presented by the Teatro Experimental Blue Amigos at the Broadway Blackbox Theater in Manhattan's Washington Heights neighborhood.
