Realbuto's show, which has been previously performed around the country and locally at Joe's Pub and 54 Below, will play for one-night-only at NYMF, on July 26 at Theater 3. Proceeds will go towards Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and The Trevor Project.
Wunderkind tells the real-life story of his earlier days as a child "star" and growing up in show business. It is performed as a solo show featuring guest appearances, such as Howard's, portraying characters from his life.
Other actors slated to feature in the show include Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked), Claybourne Elder (Bonnie & Clyde) and Adena Walker (The Baker's Wife), among many others. Christina Bianco, well-known on Youtube for her talented impersonations, will also provide additional voices, specially recorded for the show.
Wunderkind is directed and choreographed by Michael Kidney with musical direction by Andrew Wheeler. The production stage manager/lighting designer is Abby Judd. To purchase tickets visit NYMF. Theater 3 is located at 311 W. 43rd Street, Manhattan.
