Kate Baldwin and Graham Rowat to Star in "Love Letters" at Skyline Theatre Company

(BLOOMFIELD, NJ) -- Skyline Theatre Company, a 21-year-old professional theatre company now calling Essex County its home, kicks off its second season in Bloomfield on Saturday, February 10, 2024 at 7:00pm featuring Maplewood residents two-time TONY Award nominee Kate Baldwin and her real-life husband and Broadway star Graham Rowat co-starring in A.R. Gurney's delightful and touching Love Letters.

Comprised of letters exchanged between two friends over a lifetime, the characters read their letters to one another beginning in childhood and continuing through their individual marriages and careers. This evocative and frequently funny character study shows that what is implies is as revealing and affecting as what is written down. Sam Scalamoni, Skyline Theatre Company’s founder and artistic director, directs the production. 

Tickets are now on sale and reservations are strongly recommended for this one-night-only special performance at The Mansion at the Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center, 240 Belleville Avenue in Essex County’s Bloomfield, NJ.

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.

Kate 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 & South Pacific at Arena Stage, earning a Helen Hayes Award nomination.
