Unofficial Bridgerton musical wins Grammy for Best Musical Theatre album
The show has yet to find its way to the stage but has already picked up awards
The unofficial musical twist on hit Netflix series Bridgerton, which we covered last year has won a Grammy.
Penned by Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear, the show first gathered steam via TikTok (where they were the catnip of the musical theatre community). It was subsequently released as an album in September 2021, and was presented in concert across the UK and in the West End.
Bridgerton first appeared on Netflix at the beginning of 2021, instantly becoming a national sensation. A second season was released late last month.
Numbers on the album include:
"Tis The Season"
"If I Were A Man"
"Fool For You"
"Friend Turned Foe"
"Burn For You"
"Burned Me Instead"
"Balancing The Scales"
It beat off stiff competition from the all-star Les Misérables, Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella and Girl from the North Country.
