what the critics are saying
 


“Ms. Baldwin, whose portrayal of Sharon in the revival of Finian's Rainbow, earned her a 2010 Tony nomination for best actress in a musical, is a flaring stage presence. Bright eyed, she romped through 17 songs with lyrics by Mr. Harnick, singing in a clear, shiny voice infused with playful attitude. All but four of the songs had music by Jerry Bock, Mr. Harnick's longtime musical collaborator who died last November. Especially tasty was 'Gorgeous,' from the 'Passionella' section of The Apple Tree.”
–The New York Times


“When Sheldon Harnick took the stage halfway through the act, he proved himself as good a singer as most actors, and capable of an 'If I Were a Rich Man' worthy of any Tevye. Harnick was at his most charming, however, not singing or even speaking, but sitting on a barstool, eyes closed, savoring Kate Baldwin’s rendition of 'You’re Going Far' (music by Cy Coleman) like a kid at Christmas—or Hanukah, for that matter. Suddenly, the golden triangle between singer, lyricist and musical magic became palpable and complete, a stronger Mutual Admiration Society than any bedside photograph.”
– Cabaret Scenes


Kate Baldwin
She Loves Him (with Sheldon Harnick)

In the first solo disc devoted entirely to Broadway legend Sheldon Harnick’s lyrics and music, Kate Baldwin mines the master’s witty, moving and funny songs to astonishing effect in SHE LOVES HIM (Live at Feinstein's). A 2010 Tony Award-nominee for her starring role in Finian’s Rainbow, Baldwin performs favorites from Harnick’s biggest hits, Fiddler on the Roof, She Loves Me and Fiorello!, as well as rarely-heard selections from his early Off-Broadway career, film scores and unproduced musicals. Recorded live in March 2011 at New York’s Feinstein’s at Loews Regency and produced by Grammy Award-winner David Frost, the disc – with music director Scott Cady at the piano, Andrew Sterman on woodwinds and John Beale on bass – includes a special appearance by Harnick himself, who joins Baldwin on several selections. The New York Times has raved, “Magic occurs whenever Ms. Baldwin has a chance to sing,” and Harnick echoes, “I love Kate's voice and the intelligence that shapes her performances, so you can imagine how delighted I was when she told me that she wanted to do a program of my songs.” Now, this delightful set of standards and stand-outs has been preserved for fans of Baldwin, Harnick and the Great American Songbook.
