As Kate Baldwin nervously stood backstage before a performance in college, her professor whispered, “Sing pretty. Don’t fall down.” She’s managed to do both throughout her journey from a Northwestern theatre student to one of Broadway’s most beloved leading ladies. Now, she brings her cabaret show named after that same advice, SING PRETTY, DON’T FALL DOWN, to Nashville as part of Studio Tenn and TPAC’s summer cabaret series. With music direction by John McDaniel, the two-time Tony nominee with the “velvety soprano” (Entertainment Weekly) blends stories, music, and humor to share the lessons learned in her journey from college student to budding professional to one of Broadway’s honored leading ladies.

Baldwin starred as Irene Molloy opposite Bette Midler, David Hyde Pierce and Gavin Creel in the hit Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly!, for which she was nominated for the Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critic’s Circle Awards. She originated the role of Sandra Bloom in Big Fish on Broadway and earned accolades and a Drama Desk Award nomination for her work as Leslie Lynnton Benedict in Michael John LaChiusa’s Giant at The Public Theatre. She received a Drama Desk Award nomination for her role as Jen in Keen Company’s 20th Anniversary revival of Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald’s John & Jen. She garnered critical acclaim and a Lucille Lortel Award nomination for Tom Kitt and John Logan’s Superhero at Second Stage. Her starring role in the 2009 revival of Yip Harburg’s and Burton Lane’s classic musical Finian’s Rainbow drew Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critic’s Circle Award nominations and put her on the map as “a real musical theatre star” (New York Post). Baldwin has appeared in the Broadway casts of The Full Monty, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and Wonderful Town. 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, She Loves Me at the Willliamstown Theatre Festival, and The Music Man and South Pacific at Arena Stage, earning a Helen Hayes Award nomination. She drew raves for her portrayal of Francesca Johnson in The Bridges of Madison County, directed by original cast member Hunter Foster, and for her turn as Dorothy Brock in 42nd Street at Goodspeed Opera House directed by original creator Randy Skinner.
