The curtain lifted on Broadway Thursday.

Shows returned for the first time since March 2020. For fans of Broadway, shows are different. Fans are required to be vaccinated and wear a mask.

Amanda Kloots, who lost her husband, Nick Cordero, to COVID-19, attended the opening night of "Waitress," which starred Cordero before
his death.

The cast paid tribute to Cordero.

" A standing ovation before the show even began! What a night," Kloots posted on Instagram.

Kloots said Friday would have been their fourth wedding anniversary. She posted a tribute video with a caption that reads, "Our wedding was one of the best days of my life and I’ll never ever forget it."
