This past Sunday evening there was a livestream celebrating Stephen Sondheim’s 90th birthday. Participating in Take Me to the World, were Broadway luminaries such as: Raúl Esparza, Bernadette Peters, Mandy Patinkin, Patti LuPone, and many others. After some technical glitches were ironed out, it wound up being an incredible concert with many memorable performances. For me, the standout performance though, was Meryl Streep’s, Christine Baranski’s, and Audra McDonald’s boozy rendition of Ladies Who Lunch, from Company.
And, if you missed the concert, here it is in its entirety.
