Netflix has changed its tune about “The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical Album Live in Concert.” Supportive of the show when it was free online, the streamer is suing creators Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear after they staged a sell-out, for-profit concert at the Kennedy Center in D.C. last week. “Netflix supports fan-generated content, but Barlow & Bear have taken this many steps further, seeking to create multiple revenue streams for themselves without formal permission to utilize the ‘Bridgerton’ IP,” said the streamer in a statement. “We’ve tried hard to work with Barlow & Bear, and they have refused to cooperate. The creators, cast, writers and crew have poured their hearts and souls into ‘Bridgerton,’ and we’re taking action to protect their rights.”
