Amanda Kloots is joined by friend Zach Braff at the Broadway re-opening of Waitress


Amanda Kloots returned to Broadway as the hit musical Waitress re-opened and paid tribute to her late husband, Nick Cordero.

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

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 on stage after the show.

‘A standing ovation before the show even began! What a night! To see a Broadway show again tonight was unbelievable. I’ve actually never seen a show like this one tonight. I’m literally at a loss for words,’ Kloots said in her Instagram post. 

She also joined the cast on stage after the show, where she joked there may have been a ‘record broke tonight for the most standing ovations.’

‘To be here tonight is such a blessing to witness happen on this stage, incredible. You know Nick loved Broadway and he loved music and he loved acting. I think he’ll be with me every day… but I think he’ll be with y’all every night,’ she said.

They closed out the night with the whole cast, and Kloots, singing Live Your Life as the audience clapped and sang along with them.
