• “A Celebration of Learning” autism benefit. Pier 60, West Side Hwy. nr. 23rd St., 6:30 p.m. Conan O’Brien, Will Arnett, Candace Bushnell, Andrew McCarthy, and NBC Universal CEO Bob Wright are expected to be there. Wright is, roughly, the real-life analogue to Alec Baldwin’s character on 30 Rock. No word on what kind of voice-mail messages Wright leaves for his kids.
• National Corporate Theatre Fund gala. Tavern on the Green, 67 Central Park W., nr. 67th St., 6:30 p.m. Carey Perloff (artistic director of the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco) and Elaine Stritch will be honored. Nathan Lane, David Hyde Pierce, and Olympia Dukakis will do the honoring. But who will be dishonored?
