Spend a Day at Wunderkind With Tim Realbuto and a Cast of Broadway Stars
Tim Realbuto's autobiographical piece Wunderkind played a special engagement at the New York Musical Theatre Festival July 26, joined by a bevy of Broadway special guests. He documented a busy day from morning routines to post-show drinks!
Did the alarm really go off this early? Even though I’m about to perform one of the biggest shows of my entire
life, all I want to do is go back to sleep… I am not a morning person AT ALL. Usually my cat Molly jumps on my
face to get me out of bed, but she’s nowhere to be found. Even she’s sleeping in today.
Okay, I’m a bit more awake. Time for the obligatory artistic “brushing your teeth” photo. What? That’s not
Having my morning OJ in my It Shoulda Been You cup in honor of my buddy Lisa Howard, who is performing with me in my NYMF show later on today.
Every time I see one of these photo shoots, the actors always go to the gym or work out before a show… um,
this is my brand new elliptical machine. Currently it’s a closet.
It’s a gorgeous day, so I decide to get a little sun on my deck before leaving for tech rehearsal/sound check. I’m
drinking one of my Arbonne detox shakes. I can’t recommend this diet enough. It tastes like a milkshake! Also, I felt like I was on a mini vacation while taking this picture… ya know, before the real craziness of the day began.
Dressed and ready to leave. (Note the sign on door: “Pick up scripts!”… I didn’t forget, but I do leave notes all
around my apartment otherwise I’d forget my head).
My best friend (and co-writer) Matthew Martin took this pic as we drove into Manhattan from Brooklyn for the big day. (Yes, we are stopped at a red light).
