One of the first shows to officially reopen is none other than “Waitress,” during which Nick Cordero famously starred as Earl. In order to pay homage not solely to the return of live performances, but in addition to Cordero’s dying, Kloots took heart stage to say a couple of words about her late husband. And, in true BFF style, Braff got here by to indicate his assist (via CNN). Cordero died in 2020 from COVID-related complications, per Page Six. Although the rumors weren’t true, they continued gushing over one another in interviews.
