Phoebe Waller-Bridge's comic solo play went on to inspire a hit television series, now she brings the original show stateside for its NYC debut. 'Fleabag' is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. More…
Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.
for a previous production "This is filthily funny monologue...The unnamed protagonist is a clever, witty, and desperately lonely young woman...numbed to almost all emotional connection...'Fleabag’s' too clever to think feminism doesn’t matter to her but too sad to do much about it...As both writer and performer, Waller-Bridge knows how to work a crowd, and from the show’s bittersweet beginning to its devastating end, she has the entire room in the palm of her hand." Full Review
for a previous production "One of the funniest, filthiest and most disturbing shows you're likely to see, packed with dry humour and guilty laughs. The superb solo performance from Waller-Bridge, who also wrote 'Fleabag,' is an epic achievement...Phoebe Waller-Bridge is so good at flipping audience emotions that it can occasionally feel as if we're being played like fish on a line – but hey ho, it's worth it. A masterly comic creation...Waller-Bridge wants this story to reach into audience hearts. She succeeds." Full Review
for a previous production "'Fleabag' is a rare piece...The live show brings the extra pleasure of watching Waller-Bridge’s skill at goading and controlling the audience. She deliberately kills big laughs with transgressive details that draw appalled gasps or groans. Her physical and expressional versatility is even more impressive in the flesh, as she instantaneously creates charades...The character is a fascinatingly complex creation." Full Review
