Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life. She 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.
At the very least, the Fathom Events NT Live release of Fleabag will be enjoyed by die-hard fans of the show worldwide. In an absolutely packed theater last week, I was able to witness the brilliance of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's performance and writing for Fleabag in her one-woman show she performed for the last time a few months ago. There's perhaps nothing more thrilling than seeing someone completely within their wheelhouse excelling at something they love. Waller-Bridge may never have as good of a role as she does with Fleabag, and witnessing it on the big screen with a theater full of fans was an incredible way to experience the performance for the last time (assuming it really is the last time....season 3?).
