Broadway actor Nick Codero sadly passed away on July 5 at the young age of 41 following a long battle with coronavirus.
The late actor’s Live Your Life — Live at Feinstein’s/54 Below is set to be released on September 17, which would have been his 42nd birthday.
Feinstein’s/54 Below concert Live Your Life was recorded in 2019 and it will be released on Broadway records. The album features performances by Kathryn Gallagher (Jagged Little Pill), Drew Gehling (Waitress), Sara Chase (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Zach Braff (Scrubs).
Cordero’s wife, Amanda Kloots, shared the news on Instagram, “Thanks to our friend @michaeljmoritz,” she wrote. “Nick’s one-man show he created last April @54below is being released by @bwayrecords with presale starting today. Nick would be absolutely thrilled to hear this news. I’ve never seen my husband work so hard on something and be so nervous to perform. I was so proud of him and absolutely loved watching him onstage these two nights. He created this show from scratch, choosing songs to tell a story… his story. There’s some Broadway tunes with fun guest stars, some pop, standards, a little Latin and of course the encore is Live Your Life.”
Director Michael Moritz (Hadestown) was also excited to announce the release, “I could not be more proud to announce that we will be releasing the recording of Nick’s one man show we put together last year for sale on @bwayrecords/streaming. Honored to help preserve Nick’s beautiful soul for the world to hear. All proceeds will benefit Nick’s family,” he posted on Instagram.
Moritz also posted a video of the late actor’s final performance on March 9, earlier this month.
The album can be pre-ordered on the Broadway Records site.
