The one-night-only performance, which was to star Vanessa Redgrave, will be rescheduled. The postponement is due to the recent, tragic death of Redgrave's daughter, Natasha Richardson.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the church is "also working very closely with the family to add a special memoriam for Richardson to the show."
Redgrave starred in the Broadway production of Magical Thinking, which is based on Joan Didion's book of the same name.
When rescheduled, the performance will benefit the programs run by UNICEF, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and their partners to help provide "much needed help to the children of Gaza and southern Israel."
