"I can’t wait to go see a show again!" wrote one, while a second said: "Have fun ladies," and a third added: "OMG, the best."

Hoda and Savannah enjoyed a night on Broadway to mark its return

The outing is clearly a welcome one for Hoda, who like millions of others, have missed celebrations, sporting events and activities in the last 18 months. 

She recently had a case of the green-eyed monster though when she discovered her co-host, Jenna Bush Hager, had gone to the US Open Men's Final without her.

Hoda voiced her utter dismay on their NBC show and said: "I have to tell you that it's not often that I look at Jenna Bush Hager… I love everything you do, but I have to tell you, sometimes I am jealous," she began.

Hoda also had to postpone her wedding to her fiance due to the COVID-19 pandemic 

"Sometimes I am jealous. I didn't know, I had to find out on Insta… it's fine! But I was looking and was like 'There's Jenna at the US Open. Wait, she's sitting with who…'

"And as I was scrolling through the pictures, Brad Pitt with the bucket hat on, Jenna Bush Hager trying not to focus on Brad Pitt with the bucket hat on, and next to Brad, another Brad – Bradley Cooper. That was the Men's Finals."

Jenna said: "First of all, I should have called you and asked you what to wear." Hoda exclaimed: "What to wear? How about 'Do you want to go?' Not 'What to wear!'"

Of course, the famous friends and co-stars were only joking with each other as they laughed their way through the segment, much to the delight of their fans who loved their hilarious interaction.
