HOLA Member Bochinche

Bochinche refers to "gossip." In this sense, we use it to mention HOLA members who are getting acting gigs.

Gladys K. Nilsen e-mailed us to let us know that she sang in The Triad cabaret in the Manhattan's West Side and at the Paris Commune in Manhattan's West Village. At the latter gig, she also collected donations for Chile earthquake relief. In addition, she can be seen in a Spanish-language commercial for 1 (800) CANTASO.

Zulema Ewens
can be seen in The Passion Play at the Park Performing Arts Center in Union City, New Jersey. The Passion Play chronicles Jesus Christ’s last five days, from Palm Sunday to Easter. It has been performed in Oberammergau, Germany since 1634, and is still performed there today. The Union City version was first presented in 1915 by a group of German and Swiss immigrants who modeled it on the German version. (It is currently the longest-running version of the play in the United States.) For more information, click here for a news article in the Hudson Reporter.

Jean-Marc Berne is continuing his Tuesday night residency performing his music at Locksmith Wine & Bar in the Washington Heights district of Manhattan.

One can catch actor/standup comedian Aldo Marachlian many times during the month. He performs at and hosts Aldo's Sinful Chicken Comedy Show (first Friday of the month at the Laugh Lounge in the Loisaida section of Manhattan), Comedy Night (every second and fourth Thursday of the month at Fizz Lounge in Woodside, Queens), El Latino Comedy Show (every third Thursday of the month at the Laugh Lounge in the Loisaida section of Manhattan), as well as in other venues across the city.
