Something exciting happened today *turns directly to camera and gives dramatic eye-roll*, the omni-talent that is Phoebe Waller-Bridge announced that Fleabag is coming to the West End and tickets sold out in, like, minutes.
Tragi-comedy Fleabag has taken the nation by storm as Waller-Bridge’s caustic, broken but just-about-likeable character makes her way through her chaotic life, stepping on as many metaphorical rakes as she can find along the way. And whether you’re one of the people who genuinely enjoyed the two critically-acclaimed series, or you’re in the majority and just rave about it because you think it makes you look on-trend and ‘with it’, you’ll be keen to hear about how to get Fleabag live tickets.
The show hits Wyndham’s Theatre in the heart of the West End for just 30 performances over four weeks this summer, and it’s guaranteed that it’s going to be the new Hamilton; vastly oversubscribed and with gold-dust tickets inevitably falling into the hands of those who don’t really ‘get’ it but do understand the cachet of being able to drop into dinner party conversation that they ‘absolutely adored’ it.
So how do you get your Philistinic hands on these wondrous Wonka-like tickets? If you’re reading this then you, like me, missed the rush and you’re now resigned to life as a social and cultural pariah. You should probably jump off a tall building.
OR, you can simply enter the daily lottery for 33 front row and box tickets which will be sold on the day of each performance for £20 each. A further 33 standing tickets at £10 each will be available per performance at £10 each on a first-come-first-served.
If all that’s not enough, and with the caveat that Phoebe Waller-Bridge herself has promised that this will be Fleabag’s final outing, but you might want to set your heart on the chance that maybe, just maybe, she’ll be persuaded to add some extra nights onto the show? After all, the run finishes on 14th September, a good fortnight before Stephen Mangan’s The Man In The White Suit begins, so surely there’s a little room to slip in a few extras? That said, with Killing Eve and now rescuing the Bond script, it’s difficult to know how Waller-Bridge could find the time, or indeed why she’d need the cash-moneys. Maybe you’ll just need to pray – just don’t involve any priests…
Fleabag will be run Wyndham’s Theatre between Tuesday 20th August and Saturday 14th September 2019
