Meryl Streep Guzzling Drinks & Singing Show Tunes With The Girls In Bathrobes Is A Mood

THIS is how I dream all my FaceTime catch-ups would go.

I like to think that I channel Meryl Streep in many things I do, but I didn’t think it was boozing in bathrobes with the girls and singing show tunes. That’s the last thing I would’ve imagined. Yet, here we are: Meryl is boozing in a bathrobe and singing show tunes with the girls.

To celebrate the (much belated) 90th birthday of Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, the musical theatre community came together for Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Celebration.

The show aired on Youtube and for ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty) and was packed with talented faces singing the best of Sondheim’s composition in the homes. We saw lots of famous bathrooms (because, acoustics, of course).

One of the night’s many highlights was the rendition of ‘The Ladies Who Lunch’ from Sondheim’s Company, performed by Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald with booze, bathrobes, and bed-hair to boot.

The trio were indulging on a number of beverages while singing the jazzy number. And among all of the things we learnt – besides the fact that they all look better in a bathrobe than I could ever dream of looking – is that Meryl likes her martini’s shaken, not stirred. She also likes drinking swanky whiskey straight from the bottle like the bad bitch she is.

It’s official, Meryl Streep invented the quarantini. I don’t make the rules, that’s just the way it is.

The way she just POPS in shaking that martini to the beat. I mean, give her the Tony already.

Naturally the musical theatre portion of Twitter lost their minds over the number, with many people making Meryl drinking reaction gifs and memes very quickly.

You owe it to yourself to watch the entire YouTube livestream as you wish. But make sure you’ve poured yourself a beverage, first. Especially if you want to channel your inner Meryl Streep.
