About the show

The first production of their 'Season of Womyn,' The Flea Theater's world premiere comedy examines how we see and value women -- and how we don't. More…

Joni is single. Joni is lost. Joni is moving a mile a minute. Joni must never be alone. After her five-year relationship ends, Joni must redefine her identity -- and fast. Breakups are hard. But Joni’s taken her breakup to the next level, physically feeling holes all over her body. From acupuncture to threesomes, 'Fill Fill Fill Fill Fill Fill Fill' asks how do we live fully in our own skin?

See it if the star Sarah Chalfie is excellent! She carries the show. It is a play about a breakup. Up beat music, geared to a younger audience.

Don't see it if It got off mark at one point, (the pulled muscle). If you do not like a show about how a young girl deals with a breakup.

Great staging, Great acting

See it if You wanna see great acting

Don't see it if Felt like a first draft. The exciting overload of the first part gives way to a more conventional, and not particularly focused, second part

Don't see it if you like a plot

Ambitious, Funny, Entertaining, Great staging, Hilarious

See it if you like The Flea's work - over the top, surprising, never a dull moment. Play about a really bad breakup and really bad advices you get

Don't see it if you are going with your parents, going on a date, don't like bad language and simulated sex on stage

49
Banal, Dizzying, Annoying at times

See it if you think seeing a terrific performance by a young actor (Sarah Chalfie) is worth wasting an evening.

Don't see it if rapid-fire/loud sequences by several actors switching characters every five seconds or actors moving in slow-motion sequences will bug you.

Also Is the new Flea Theatre really less than a year old? The lobby/waiting... Read more Read less

See it if you enjoying seeing early-career artists experimenting. You're OK with being yelled at for over an hour!

Also There are great commentaries on the way in which women are forced to b... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Fluffy, Quirky

See it if You like good sketch stuff, you want to laugh

Don't see it if you're looking for a really resonant and deep story about the aftermath of a bad breakup - a fun show but ultimately rings a little hollow

87
Clever, Entertaining, Relevant

See it if the daily struggles of a relationship and of being a woman are things that resonate with you

Don't see it if a heartwarming story with interesting staging does not interest you.

Also The play could've definitely been tighter in plot, and thicker in char... Read more Read less

See it if It's clever and energetic and very funny. It also carries a deeper message about women and how they define their self-worth.

Don't see it if You are misogynistic.

"As a story of self-empowerment and a satire of self-care, it’s not especially wise and new. The production looks chintzy and the young cast can’t always handle the tonal variations that the writing demands. It might be worth meeting those demands. Ms. Del Rosso’s dialogue is sometimes self-consc...

"A theatrical nervous breakdown/freakout/conniption fit; it pathologizes some fairly standard quarter-life anxieties, converting them into the broadest of cartoons. If there were an award for the most frantic play in town, this would be the winner...Right from the get-go, something is off...The a...

“Produced as part of the Flea's Season of Women, Del Rosso's freshman effort shows great promise. Under Marina McClure's insightfully freewheeling direction the members of The Flea's resident acting troupe, The Bats, takes the play and exuberantly runs with it with their usual unabashed energy an...

"This vibrant, explosive investigation into life after a breakup could have used a bit more fleshing-out, but what it lacks in world-building is made up in rapid-fire dialogue...The Flea's resident acting company execute 'Fill's' hyper-stylized dialogue with perfection...There is still much to be...
