Christine Baranski, Meryl Streep, and Audra McDonald are the talk of the internet after performing together for a 90th birthday tribute to songwriter Stephen Sondheim.
Appearing virtually from their respective homes, the three did a jaw-droppingly brilliant live version of “The Ladies Who Lunch” from the classic musical The Company.
The actors got boozy as they sang, with Streep even making a cocktail while McDonald struggles with a cork.
Twitter went wild after the performance, with users praising the women and declaring the number a master class in acting.
The online tribute raised money for the charity ASTEP (Artists Striving to End Poverty).
That Ladies Who Lunch will be dissected in musical theatre classes for years to come. #mesmerizing

Meryl Streep, Audra MacDonald and Christine Barnaski singing Sondheim over Zoom in their bathrobes is, and I can not stress this enough, the ultimate mood. #sondheim90concert pic.twitter.com/261pNlhot1
