<p>Broadway veteran Kate Baldwin is no stranger to theatrical adaptations of films, having gotten her start on the Great White Way with “The Full Monty.”</p>

<p>After a slew of other roles (“Finian’s Rainbow,” “Throughly Modern Millie”), nominations for a variety of awards (a Tony, a Drama Desk and a Helen Hayes) and TV gigs (“Law & Order: SVU”), Baldwin is back on Broadway in another cinematic adaptation.</p>

<p>She plays Sandra Bloom, wife of Edward (Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz), in “Big Fish,” a new musical based on the novel by Daniel Wallace and the 2003 Tim Burton film. The musical, directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Susan Stroman, begins previews on Sept. 5 and opens Oct. 6 at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre.</p>

<p>What’s your background?
I studied musical theater at Northwestern University. I’m originally from Evanston, Ill. When the show went to Chicago, I got to go and see the places where I used to go and talk to the musical theater students.</p>
