July 25 (UPI) -- America Ferrera reunited with several of her former Ugly Betty co-stars in Los Angeles this week.

The 33-year-old actress and Ana Ortiz, who played sisters Betty and Hilda Suarez on the ABC series, went to see Vanessa Williams and Jesse Tyler Ferguson perform Sunday in the musical Sondheim on Sondheim.

Ferrera and Ortiz posed for a photo with Williams backstage after attending the production at the Hollywood Bowl. Williams portrayed Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty, while Ferguson guest starred as Gabe Farkus.

"Pretty sure our seat neighbors at The Hollywood Bowl last night were so over me and @therealanaortiz screaming 'Go Vanessa' really loudly. But that's how our #uglybetty family rolls," Ferrera wrote on Instagram.

"@vanessawilliamsofficial killed it at Sondheim on Sondheim. And @jessetyler Knocked it out! Seeing my #UglyBettyFamily always makes me so happy! #familiaforever," she added.

Ferrara played Betty throughout Ugly Betty's four-season run from 2006 to 2010. She and the cast discussed the possibility of a Hulu or Netflix revival while attending the ATX Television Festival in February.

"Everybody here take out your phone. Hashtag: Betty Reboot," the actress encouraged fans, according to Entertainment Weekly. "We need a hashtag and tweet it out and then we're going to get Hulu to buy a two-hour special."

"I have thought about this," she added. "So, fade in: I think that it's been six years, maybe seven, depending on how long when Hulu wants to premiere this. I think that Betty has been in London for six years and now she's coming home."
