“We are so thrilled for The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical album to make its orchestral world premiere at The Kennedy Center," shares the Barlow and Bear in a statement. "When we began this journey, we had no idea how much this music would resonate with so many people. Being able to perform our work at such an iconic venue is a dream come true, and we can’t wait to see you all there."
Barlow and Bear originally created the musical concept for social media and garnered more than 36 million likes on TikTok. Ultimately, The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical was released as an album—which won the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album—with 15 songs based on the Netflix hit.
The concert will be produced by AMP Worldwide in partnership with Discovering Broadway, executive produced by Elizabeth Armstrong, cast by Ally Kiley, and directed by Sammi Cannold.
