Video Meryl Streep Made Sure Babs Knew About Jonathan Groff's Barbra Streisand-Themed Dressing Room Bar

The coup made the Merrily We Roll Along star "die a thousand gay deaths," he shares on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Broadway has been making gay dreams come true for generations, and it continues even today. Jonathan Groff, currently starring in the Broadway revival of Merrily We Roll Along at the Hudson Theatre, dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon April 1 to talk about BARbra, his Barbra Streisand-themed dressing room bar.

Groff is a lifelong fan of Streisand, so imagine his reaction when backstage guest Meryl Streep (pearls clutched) asked to take his picture in front of his neon BARbra sign, only then to reveal she was texting it to THE Barbra. "I died a thousand gay deaths," Groff shares, lying flat on the floor.

Watch Groff's complete interview above.

The revival of Merrily We Roll Along opened October 10, 2023, at the Hudson Theatre, where it will continue through July 7. Directed by Olivier winner Maria Friedman, Merrily We Roll Along features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by George Furth.

The revival stars Daniel Radcliffe as Charley Kringas, Groff as Franklin Shepard, and Lindsay Mendez as Mary Flynn. The trio are all reprising their performances from the production's 2022 Off-Broadway run at New York Theatre Workshop, along with Krystal Joy Brown as Gussie Carnegie, Katie Rose Clarke as Beth Shepard, and Reg Rogers as Joe Josephson. Max Rackenberg, Rocco Van Auken, and Brady Wagner share the role of Frank Jr.
