Hollywood icons Meryl Streep, 74, and Martin Short, 73, lit up Broadway with their presence at the Hudson Theatre to catch the Saturday night performance of “Merrily We Roll Along.” The pair, known for their camaraderie on the hit Hulu series “The Only Murders in the Building,” were spotted enjoying the show together, much to the delight of fans and the cast alike.

Following the performance, Streep and Short didn’t miss the chance to mingle with the cast, showering them with praises. A video shared by cast member Krystal Joy Brown showcased Streep’s admiration for the performance, exclaiming, “Wonderful! You were wonderful… That was … wow.” The moment of camaraderie didn’t end there, as Short initiated a rendition of “Old Friends” from the musical, quickly joined by Streep and the ensemble, including stars Jonathan Groff and Daniel Radcliffe.

This special visit left a lasting impression on the “Merrily We Roll Along” cast, with many taking to social media to express their excitement and gratitude for the support from such esteemed colleagues.

Speculation about Streep and Short’s relationship has been a topic of interest, especially in light of Streep’s long separation from her husband, Don Gummer.

This Broadway outing comes amidst the filming of “The Only Murders in the Building” Season 4, which promises to take the beloved characters on a new adventure in Los Angeles before returning to their New York roots at The Arconia. With the addition of stars like Molly Shannon, Eugene Levy, Eva Longoria, and Kumail Nanjiani, the upcoming season is eagerly anticipated.
