About the show

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…

"Waller-Bridges’ portrayal of her grief, and the slow onion peel of her role in her friend’s silly, terrible death, is still affecting here, even if it feels like the first season’s six episodes had much more time to let that narrative arc breathe. All of these nitpicks are moot, of course, if yo...
