She has performed in Finian’s Rainbow to critical acclaim and a Tony nomination, as well as, productions such as Wonderful Town, The Full Monty, and Thoroughly Modern Millie. In November 2010, she took part in a concert tribute to Stephen Sondheim with the New York Pops at Carnegie Hall. In October 2009, Baldwin released her first solo album; Let's See What Happens.

The premiere of the new musical Paradise Found featured Baldwin in a production co-directed by Harold Prince and Susan Stroman at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London (May 19-June 26, 2010). The Telegraph wrote of her performance: "The best performance comes from Kate Baldwin, who is both affecting and a succulent feast for the eye, as Mizzi.” Currently, she is preparing for her next project as Marion in Music Man at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.
