ABSOLUTE PERFECT THEATRE EXPERIENCE
By: Sabrina Lemer
Fleabag, the hit TV show with a cult like following is returning to its roots and appearing in its original format as a one woman show starring Phoebe Waller Bridge. After its sold out run in New York, the show’s back where it belongs for only 30 odd performances. I had bought tickets before I had even seen the show so in preparation for it, I spent the last few days binge watching this amazing piece of programming.
Fleabag is a messy character whose dysfunctional family and lifestyle keeps her firmly rooted in despair and drama. The play is basically a recap of season one but it’s really amazing as to how Waller-Bridge literally takes you though all six episodes with just herself, a chair and a few taped lines. The show was completely sold out and runs just seventy minutes with no intermission which is as close to the absolute perfect theatre experience!
