• The Year of Magical Thinking opening. Vanessa Redgrave stars in Joan Didion's memoir adaptation, directed by David Hare. Booth Theatre, 222 W. 45th St., nr. Broadway, 7 p.m. Check out the cover of the Playbill for this show. Wow. If you can't get tickets, it seems like you could re-create the emotional experience by sitting in your apartment for three hours with the lights off thinking about genocide.
• Fashionaire Collection show. Gramercy Park Hotel, 2 Lexington Ave., nr. 21st St., 7 p.m. Christina Ricci hosts a party to celebrate a new line of luggage. For serious. Marisa Tomei, Gina Gershon, Glenda Bailey, and others are expected. Expected to stand around, swill free booze, and admire a carry-on, that is.
