I’ll drink to this!
Meryl Streep, Audra McDonald, and Christine Baranski gathered on Zoom for a boozy birthday tribute to Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim on his 90th birthday.
Absolutely no eating took place, but the trio put away a fair amount of celebratory drinks as they gave a brilliant rendition of Sondheim’s “The Ladies Who Lunch.”
Oscar-winning Streep swigs scotch as while shaking up a martini, Baranski chugs down glasses of wine and McDonald sips on bourbon in between the line “I’ll drink to that!”
It sums up life in quarantine perfectly and it now exists as a series of GIFs too.
The sing-song was part of the Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Birthday Celebration, which boasts a starry line-up of Broadway stars toasting to the composer to benefit underserved youth communities.
