Come to the cabaret: Liza Minnelli, among others, is expected to perform Oct. 25 at the annual Actors' Fund benefit, which will pay tribute to songwriters John Kander and Fred Ebb, who wrote many of Minnelli's career highlights, including her Tony-winning "Flora, the Red Menace" and her Oscar-winning "Cabaret." The event is at the Luckman Theatre at Cal State L.A.

Disney Hall: Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Catherine Zeta-Jones will host the last of three galas to celebrate the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall on Oct. 25. For those without tickets, excerpts from all three gala concerts will be broadcast Oct. 29 on PBS.

Stepping down: James N. Wood, president of the Art Institute of Chicago for the past 23 years, says he plans to retire in 2004 once a replacement has been found.
