When she’s not on Broadway in musicals like Mamma Mia! and The Drowsy Chaperone, actress Stacia Fernandez is channeling the desperate, middle-aged, self-help seeking actress Marina Lippon. In a clever online video series called Middle (St)age, viewers can watch Marina taping her very first video blog. She’s everything you think struggling actresses (of all ages) are like – a little anxious, a little angry, and—at the end of the day—determined to land a job.
Middle (St)age is just one of many funny original series available on Stage17. Comedic actors Michael Kayne and D’Arcy Carden (of Upright Citizens Brigade) star in Terrible Babysitters. In each episode, the couple interviews a different babysitting candidate who eventually confesses too much–armed burglary, homelessness, a psychotic fear of sea horses. One wonders if they’ll ever find a match. We hope not.
