Amanda Kloots returned to Broadway when the hit musical Waitress reopened and paid tribute to her late husband, Nick Cordero.

Cordero started out with the role of Earl when Waitress opened on Broadway in March 2016, with the beloved actor tragically dying from COVID-19 in July 2020.

Kloots, 39, was joined by family friend Zach Braff for the first performance since Broadway went dark due to COVID, and she even joined the cast onstage after the show.

‘A standing ovation before the show started! What a night! It was incredible to see another Broadway show tonight. I’ve actually never seen a show like this tonight. I literally lack words,” says Kloots in her Instagram message.

She also joined the cast onstage after the show, where she joked that a “record for most standing ovations” may have been broken tonight.
