Broadway Star Nick Cordero’s Wife Amanda Says: “He is starting to wake up” after Six Weeks in a Coma Because of Corona virus


Amanda Kloots, wife of Broadway star Nick Cordero, has some hopeful news. She writes on Instagram:

“We had some great news this morning. Nick is starting to follow commands and doing simple tracking!!!!! He is very weak so even just opening his eyes is a struggle, but it is happening. He is starting to wake up!! We are by no means out of the woods yet, there are still concerns with other things, but this news today on his mental status is a win!!”

Nick, Tony nominee for “Bullets over Broadway” and star of “The Bronx Tale” and “Waitress” has been in a coma since around April 1st in Los Angeles’s Cedar Sinai Hospital. He’s had a leg amputated because of blood clots, recently had a ventilator removed, and suffered at least two mini strokes. It’s been torture for him and his family.

His friends around the world are supporting him on social media and praying for a rapid recovery. The couple has a toddler boy, Elvis, who is shamelessly cute.
