In the wake of Netflix’s successful debut, Bridgerton took over TikTok thanks to the skills of two music creators. TikTok users and Bridgerton: The Musical creators Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear spoke Today on how their social media show came together
“We were obsessed with the show. Who doesn’t like it? There is so much drama, such a great storytelling and I was done gorging myself and there was one piece of dialogue that stood out among the rest, and I flew over to my piano, ”Barlow told Today’s TMRW.
Barlow first created “Daphne’s Song,” based on the character of Phoebe Dynevor, which went viral on the social media platform. Barlow’s issue circulated TikTok, prompting reactions from his comrades Bridgerton-viewers and inspired collaborator Emily Bear.
‘On My Block’ renewed at Netflix for fourth and final season
Bear, who studied at Julliard and New York University, showed her musical knowledge with the trend and began collaborating with Barlow, with whom she previously worked on another musical project.
“We write incredibly fast together, so it’s kind of like a yin and yang situation when we write,” Barlow said. “Our skills are so complementary. And so, when I miss a place or lose my inspiration, she always knows what to do.
While the two musicians have certainly grabbed the attention of thousands of TikTok users and Netflix executives, their aspirations go beyond the digital space as they both turn to Broadway. Meanwhile, however, the Bridgerton The team, including author Julia Quinn, showed their support for the creative duo.
“It’s crazy. Having created something that has inspired so many people to tap into their own creativity is honestly the coolest part for us,” added Bear. “Because we are creators ourselves and we we thrive by being inspired and so the fact that we can have that effect on other creatives is very humbling.
