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.

Raúl Rivera, shown at right in the photo at right with Luis Felipe Rodríguez, received a Citation from the City Council of the City of New York proclaiming him "an outstanding citizen" of the city, which can be seen at left. He received the citation at an event at the Teatro Rafael Villalona in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan.

Maite Uzal will star as Abuela Claudia in the Axelrod Performing Arts Center (APAC) production of the Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegría Hudes musical In The Heights. Directed and choreographed by Luis Salgado, the production will take place in March at Axelrod's eponymous theater in Deal Park, New Jersey.  For more information, click here.
