Our season closes with a touch of fall and a Gala evening with Broadway celebrity Kate Baldwin. For one night only, The Sembrich will take on the aura of an outdoor New York City supper club, a lakeside Feinstein’s 54 Below, with an exclusive performance by one of Broadway’s current-day stars.

Kate portrayed Irene Malloy opposite both Bette Midler and Bernadette Peters in the 2017 Tony-winning revival of Hello Dolly! garnering accolades for her sparkling humor and soaring voice. Her starring role in the 2009 Broadway revival of the hit classic musical Finian’s Rainbow drew Tony, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award nominations, and put her on the map as “a real musical theatre star” (New York Post). 

Hailed as “the redheaded firecracker” (Stephen Holden, The New York Times), Kate’s concert evening features a wide range of titles from the American Songbook in a playlist designed specifically for the Sembrich audience. Highlights include signature songs from her acclaimed career such as “Look to the Rainbow” and “How Are Things in Glocca Mora” from Finian’s Rainbow and “I Don’t Need a Roof” from Big Fish, Broadway classics from Sweet Charity, Golden Boy, Company, and The Full Monty, current day hits by U2 and Celine Dione, and Kander and Ebb’s iconic anthem to Gotham, “New York, New York.” Throughout the evening, Kate will share personal anecdotes and stories about how each selected song became part of her life. 

Kate will be joined by longtime musical collaborator, pianist, and composer Georgia Stitt, who is represented on the program with her “One-Minute Song Cycle,” a set of seven art songs composed for Kate, and by her gorgeous arrangement of the traditional Irish folk song, “The Water is Wide.”

“A Kind of September” promises a memorable evening of story and song, a not-to-be-missed highlight of the 2022 summer season. “We suppose there are some things that Baldwin cannot do, but over the past decade we have yet to see her be anything but superb,” says Steven Suskin of Playbill.
