On with the Show

At this month’s cover shoot, Oprah proved she’s just a Broadway baby. Having seen Hello, Dolly! the night before, our model was suddenly inspired to burst into a chorus of "Before the Parade Passes By." Her bright striped dress only added to the moment: "You don’t wander around in these colors, you go"—up popped her jazz hands—"I’m herrre!" In this case, "here" was Wave Hill, a Bronx cultural hub spread over 28 plush acres reminiscent of Tuscany. In a field surrounded by flower gardens, photographer Ruven Afanador instructed, "Run! Turn! Be happy!" The one-woman parade laughed, and a cover was born.
