Web Series Worth Watching: Alex Quiroga in it could be worse
Web Series of the Week: it could be worse
Broadway actor Alex Quiroga (Wicked, Taboo) doesn't say anything in the latest episode of this new web series, but he's certainly very nice to look at - and he can sit on my kitchen counter in his tighty whities anytime. it could be worse tells the story of Jacob Gordon (played by co-creator Wesley Taylor from TV's Smash), a young actor whose life just isn't going that well. Quiroga plays one of Jacob's mother's boy toys, and five-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald makes a guest appearance as Jacob's grieving therapist whom he tries to comfort. The series is a quirky dark comedy that I'm enjoying so far, and it's definitely worth checking out.
Below you can watch the second episode as well as Quiroga's "It Gets Better" video - so you can hear him speak! To watch the first episode, go to itcouldbeworse.tv. You can also follow the series on Facebook and Twitter.

The 3 Bits
Created by Max Freeman and Margaret Singer, this new series is "a queer show about sex, love, booze, drugs, friendship, family and amazing acts of stupidity - but mostly sex."
