Farwell Nick Cordero, Artistic Masks, Organic Greens
Last week we learned the awful news that Broadway actor Nick Cordero, who spent 3 months in the hospital battling Covid-19, succumbed to the devastating virus.
His wife was vocal about his many challenges, but never gave up, even when doctors had no hope. She was a beacon of light during the harrowing ordeal.
The Broadway community and the nation were pulling for Nick, praying for him, and many have contributed to the family’s Go Fund Me page. It was so terribly sad to learn that he slipped away over the July 4th weekend.
In his sorrow and grief, Nick’s friend and understudy for him in “A Bronx Tale,” had the idea to honor Nick by re-naming the Longacre Theatre after him. And so, actor and producer Robert Neary launched a petition for this very purpose. In a very short time, the petition has garnered over 30,000 names.
