Theatre TikTok has delivered the goods once again, this time in the form of a simply divine Bridgerton musical.
This all started over the weekend when TikTok user and songwriter Abigail Barlow posted a song she had written from the point of view of Daphne Bridgerton.

Sensing she’d struck gold, Barlow posted a second song about Daphne and Simon Basset right after they were hastily married.
The original song is called Burn For You and it takes place right before all the sex, when Daphne and Simon are at the inn. You know what I’m talking about.
Simon is trying to keep his distance from his new wife because he doesn’t think Daphne loves him, while Daphne is wondering why her new husband is acting so cold. It’s a classic case of miscommunication, which concluded with Daphne and Simon telling each other: “I burn for you”.
Using TikTok’s duet feature, Barlow encouraged her viewers to join in and perform Simon’s part, which she had already written.

Daly’s TikTok has racked up a cool 1.5 million views since he posted it one day ago.
Netflix quickly caught wind of the performance and shared it on Twitter, writing: “Absolutely blown away by the Bridgerton musical playing out on TikTok.”
Series creator Chris Van Dusen praised the musical on Twitter as well.
“The Bridgerton musical is blowing. My. Mind,” he tweeted along with a bunch of emojis.
If you need more, Barlow has written two more original songs inspired by Bridgerton. One is about Penelope Featherington, while the other is another Simon and Daphne duet.
Theatre TikTok is just the gift that keeps on giving.
Bridgerton is streaming now on Netflix.
