Vanessa Redgrave Postpones Performance after Natasha's Death

Vanessa Redgrave has decided to postpone a performance of her one-woman show to allow more time to grieve the loss of her daughter Natasha Richardson.

ETonline reported that Vanessa was scheduled to perform her show, The Year Of Magical Thinking, on April 27th at New York City’s Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, but has since postponed it.

St. John's spokesman, Jonathan Korzen, tells E! News that the one-night-only appearance is expected be rescheduled by the end of the week and that the church was "deeply saddened" by Natasha's death.

The show is also reportedly going to be reworked to include a special tribute to Natasha during the show. What seems even sadder is the fact that the show deals with an author who is mourning the death of her husband and daughter.

We don’t blame Vanessa for postponing the show, or even canceling it for that matter. Especially given the subject matter of the show, she should take as much time as she needs before getting back on stage or in front of the camera.
