Realbuto's show, which has been previously performed around the country and locally at Joe's Pub and 54 Below, plays one-night-only at Theater 3. Proceeds 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 actors portraying characters from his life.

Other actors appearing 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, also provides 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.
