We're excited, folks: today we can watch the Fleabag play online. And I have to tell you, it's a must, even if you binged the original Amazon Prime series already.
Yes, finally, we've finally got the chance to bring the original theatrical show home. A recording of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's one-woman stage show, which was supposed to be for theatrical release only, is now on streaming.

As someone who saw the Fleabag stage show in a tiny, cramped movie theater last year, I wholeheartedly recommend this special. For as well as Waller-Bridge bounces off of her co-stars, and as much fun as it was to hate the slimy Martin (Brett Gelman) or groan at Fleabag's godmother (Olivia Colman) in the Fleabag show, this theatrical run gives you a different, and more vulnerable, side of the titular character.
And making things even better, it's all being done for charity. All proceeds from the downloads from the current VOD run "will be split between charities, including The National Emergencies Trust, NHS Charities Together and Acting for Others."
