Broadway Actor Nick Cordero Has His Leg Amputated After COVID-19 Complications

We’re so incredibly sad to report that Tony-nominated actor Nick Cordero has had his right leg amputated after suffering complications from COVID-19.

His wife, Amanda Kloots, confirmed on Instagram that he “made it out of surgery alive and is headed to his room to rest and recover.”

According to reports, Nick had been treated with blood thinners to help with clotting in his leg. When it started to cause internal bleeding, his doctors had to stop the treatment.

“We took him off blood thinners but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today,” she said yesterday.

Amanda has been sending Nick daily videos of her and their 10-month-old son, Elvis, as he’s been in the hospital.

A GoFundMe fundraiser has raised over $200,000 thus far.

Of course, Nick originated the role of Earl opposite his estranged wife, played by Jessie Mueller, in Waitress on Broadway. He also played the role of Sonny in Chazz Palminteri’s A Bronx Tale.

We’re sending all our prayers to his family.
