CITY GIRL: Sarah Jessica Parker sits down with WNYC’s Leonard Lopate to talk about her career thus far—the stilettos, the awards, and how she’s managed to balance it all with raising a family (our theory: hairstylist on retainer)—at the 92nd Street Y; part of Lectures & Conversations. 8PM.
KING FOR A DAY: Alt-cabaret figure Isengart—who usually specializes in breathing new life into WWI and III-era popular song from France and Germany—tackles a whole different era in his show The Importance of Being Elvis (with six-piece band the Diplomats), which returns to Joe’s Pub. There’ll be plenty of Presley tunes, but the show goes beyond that, exploring the drama of the king’s tragic life through music from eras pre-war to post-MTV. 10PM.
EVERYWHERE: Yes, your suspicions are correct: Michael Caine has been in about 92% of all movies ever made. He talks about his busy creative life in his memoir The Elephant to Hollywood, recounting his path from dirt-poor London childhood to Oscars and being knighted by the Queen, plus how Michael Jackson saved him from petering out midway. The book comes out today; he’ll discuss and sign it at the Barnes & Noble at 46th Street & 5th Avenue. 6PM.
