My View: Extraordinary Is The Word – Kate Baldwin in Extraordinary Machine at Feinstein’s/54 Below

“Extraordinary Machine” was a well chosen title for Kate Baldwin’s show at Feinstein’s/54 Below. A Tony Award nominee, Kate is extraordinary in her ability to use her sturdy but dulcet voice to effectively sing an eclectic mix of Broadway, indie pop, folk and country melodies. For me the highlight of her song list was the warmth and beauty she brought to Billy Joel’s “Lullabye”. It’s lyrics “Goodnight, my angel, time to close your eyes and save these questions for another day” were never more heartwarming  as when Kate sang them. It was a wonderfully string congested stage with musicians playing, violin, viola, cello, bass,guitar, drums, and backup singers led by music director (piano) Kris Kukul. The sound produced by the ensemble was “extraordinary”. The show was well paced and Robbie Rozelle’s direction was the perfect fit for the comedic, acting and musical talents of  Ms Baldwin. This was the last night of “Extraordinary Machine” but Kate will soon be seen in the Broadway Revival of Hello Dolly this March.
