Meryl Streep and Martin Short have taken their friendship to Broadway, attending a performance of the revival of Merrily We Roll Along.

“Meryl & Martin Short?!?! I am absolutely floored,” Merrily cast member Krystal Joy Brown wrote via Instagram Story on Saturday, March 16, sharing backstage pics after the show. “I performed for these two legends and they were so kind & effusive about our show and said some kind words to me I will NEVER forget.”

Streep, 74, and Short, 73, stood on either side of Brown, 37, in her post-show snap, all smiles as they twinned in black.

Streep and Short also met up with the entire cast — led by actors Daniel Radcliffe, Jonathan Groff and Lindsay Mendez — on the stage.

Everyone loves an on-set couple — and these duos are no exception! Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, Hilarie Burton and Sophia Bush are just a few of the stars who went from costars to best friends in real life. Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps, for instance, met while filming Dawson’s Creek. The Oscar nominee starred as Jen […]

“You were wonderful! What a show,” Streep gushed to the cast, per footage shared by Brown. “Must be a joy. Hope it is. That’ll be nice.”

Short, meanwhile, was whistling “Growing Up” (a song from the musical) in the background before Mendez, 41, asked if the pair would pose for another photo with the whole cast.

Streep and Short have gotten closer since the Oscar winner joined his Only Murders in the Building for season 3. After Streep’s Loretta served as the love interest for Short’s Oliver Putnam, rumors swirled that they were an item in real life.

As fans sat down to watch episodes of Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building — which premiered in August 2021 — many were surprised to see several famous faces pop up for a blink-and-you-missed-it cameo. The show, which stars Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez, has seen several big names come by for a […]

“They are just very good friends, nothing more,” Short’s rep told The Messenger in January, denying the reports.

The pair continued to fuel dating rumors, especially after they both attended the Golden Globes later in January. (They were both nominated for their OMITB roles but each lost.)

While the duo have shut down dating speculation, they’ve remained close all thanks to their OMITB bond.

“It was one of the great thrills of my life,” Short said during a March For Your Consideration event. “In fact, the first day of shooting — which was rare because I’m not brand new — I was driving to work and I thought, ‘I’m nervous today. I’m working with Meryl Streep.’”

During the panel, Streep revealed that she called up the producers to ask for a role.

“I was a huge fan of the show, but I also just wanted to have some fun because the world is pretty sh–ty right now,” she quipped.

Streep will return to OMITB for season 4, which is currently in production, alongside Short and costars Steve Martin and Selena Gomez.
