Bridgerton has been re-imagined on social media platform TikTok by singer Abigail Barlow.
She shared, “I’ve always posted my original music on TikTok so this was no different.”
The American has started work on a musical version of the hit Netflix show. So far it includes original songs based on the show. Other users can add their own verses using the app’s Duet feature.
Barlow and her writing partner Emily Bear have “big dreams” of turning it into a full-scale production. The songs “Oceans Away” and “Burn for You” have been widely shared on TikTok, leading to the pair recording fully orchestrated versions.
She believes the stories and the characters in the show were crying out to be sung about.
Barlow explained, “I love the dialogue in Bridgerton and there was this incredible line that one of the characters says – ‘You do not understand what it’s like to be in a room with someone you can’t live without and feel like you’re oceans away from them.'”
