Kate Baldwin on motherhood, Broadway, ‘Big Fish’

This undated publicity photo released by The Hartman Group shows Kate Baldwin, right, and Norbert Leo Butz during Act II of "Big Fish," at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York. "Big Fish," a musical adapted from the 1998 Daniel Wallace novel and a 2003 Tim Burton movie, opens Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013, with music by Andrew Lippa and co-stars two-time Tony Award winner Butz. AP

That feels very Broadway to me,” she says happily. The theater itself was built in 1927 and that may explain the littleness of her quarters. “People were smaller then, too,” she jokes.
