About Kate Baldwin
Kate Baldwin has played several starring roles on Broadway including Irene Molloy in the revival of Hello, Dolly!, for which she was nominated for Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critic’s Circle Awards. Her starring role in the 2009 revival of Finian’s Rainbow, which also drew the above nominations, put her on the map as “a real musical theatre star” (New York Post). Since then, Baldwin has appeared in the Broadway casts of The Full Monty, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Wonderful Town. Elsewhere, she starred in The King and I at the Lyric Opera of Chicago; Irving Berlin’s White Christmas (San Francisco, Detroit, Toronto); The Women at The Old Globe; Henry V at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey; I Do, I Do at Westport Country Playhouse; She Loves Me at the Williamstown Theatre Festival; and The Music Man and South Pacific at Arena Stage, earning a Helen Hayes Award nomination.
Baldwin has performed in concert with many orchestras including the New York Pops, Boston Pops, National Symphony, Detroit Symphony, and Chicago Symphony, and in such venues as Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and the legendary New York nightclubs Feinstein’s, Birdland, and 54 Below.
Her debut album on PS Classics, Let’s See What Happens, features Lane and Harburg songs from both stage and film. Baldwin’s second album, celebrating the work of lyricist Sheldon Harnick, is entitled She Loves Him.
