Tony nominee and award-winning Broadway veteran Kate Baldwin will perform a one-night only benefit concert for The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey (STNJ). Proceeds from the ticket sales will go toward the support of the Theatre’s artistic and education programming.

Ms. Baldwin, who performed at STNJ a number of years ago in Shakespeare’s Henry V, and who has since performed in their Annual Gala Cabaret, will be accompanied by her long-time friend and collaborator, Georgia Stitt. Ms. Baldwin will perform signature songs from her rich repertoire that has evolved over the length of her acclaimed career. Hailed as “the redheaded firecracker” by Stephen Holden of The New York Times, the performance will include gorgeous music and expert storytelling from songwriters like Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, Jerry Herman and Ms. Stitt. “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,” said Steven Suskin of Playbill.

Last month, STNJ’s Back Yard Stage production of Crazy Love! garnered both local and national acclaim, and The New York Times coined the event, “Medicine for the play-starved soul.” Audiences were thrilled to be able to see a live performance again after so long, and they were able to enjoy having Shakespeare, Molière and Edna St. Vincent Millay’s work come to life under a moonlit sky in a safe and beautiful environment. 

For the A Kind of September concert with Ms. Baldwin, STNJ will expand the seating capacity, add some new lighting and sound features, and provide a limited amount of VIP cabaret-table seating, replete with champagne and tidbits to snack on during the concert. Audience members are required to wear masks.
