Allow us to set the scene: twinkling candles are scattered across the dining table. Pine cones rest rustically on each exquisite piece of china. Dim lights set a cozy yet enigmatic mood. And an exclusive guest list includes our favorite Jewish superstars: Barbra Streisand and Billy Eichner. Together. Giving thanks. Probably spilling tea about the Golden Age of Broadway. Praise!
An image of the swanky gathering made its way onto social media, sending fans into a tailspin. Thinking about Barbra and Billy feasting and kibitzing together fills us with all kinds of giddy gratitude.
Billy confirmed the get-together with uncharacteristic calm:
Wow. You’re good! I actually did and it was beautiful. Barbra Forever! https://t.co/2U9EXDjiGs— billy eichner (@billyeichner) November 25, 2018
Thanksgiving is over, but the image of Billy and Barbra talking about the live action “Lion King” teaser trailer in an autumnal setting will stay with us for our entire lives. We give thanks to our icons for providing us with this visual feast.
