Vanessa Redgrave has rescheduled her benefit performance of the stage version of "The Year of Magical Thinking" at New York's Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.

Cathedral spokesman Jonathan Korzen says the performance will be held Oct. 26 as a benefit for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which provide help for the children of Gaza and southern Israel.

It originally had been set for April 27.

In 2007, Redgrave starred on Broadway in Joan Didion's meditation on the deaths of her husband and daughter and later performed the one-woman show in London.

Redgrave's eldest daughter, Natasha Richardson, died March 18 from injuries received in a skiing accident in Canada.
