'Oprah's Lifeclass' Hits the Road With New Episodes Starting in March
Oprah Winfrey is a rolling stone. Besides taking her act on the road for the interview series, Oprah’s Next Chapter, OWN announced that Oprah’s Lifeclass is going on tour starting with its first new episode back on March 26.
Dubbed Oprah’s Lifeclass: The Tour, Winfrey takes the show to three different cities over six new episodes. The first episode shoots live at the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis on Monday, March 26. Then, the production heads to Radio City Music Hall in New York on Monday, April 2. A third city has yet to be announced.
“Taking Lifeclass on the road gives Oprah the opportunity to connect on a whole new level with our viewers in person, on-air and online,” OWN President Sheri Salata says. “We are gathering the most inspiring teachers to discuss the fundamental life principles that are the keys to unlocking our own greatest potential.”
Oprah’s guest teachers for the trip include Iyanla Vanzant, who squashed her longtime estrangement from the host in a two-part appearance on The Oprah Show’s last season, and Bishop T.D. Jakes in St. Louis, Missouri. Spiritualist Deepak Chopra and business and life coach Tony Robbins will join Winfrey in New York.
The episodes will also livestream at Oprah.com.
