It has been ten years since the world was first exposed to R. Kelly’s ‘Trapped In The Closet’, which is a 33-chapter narrative that started as a song and morphed into its own unique entity, getting weirder and more complex the further it went. In total, the ‘hip hopera’ spans 135 minutes. That’s a little longer than the average movie.
On October 31 at 8pm, New Jersey’s Strand Theatre will premiere the first 12 chapters “note for note in their entirety” for one night only. It will delivered by Remember Jones alongside a 20-piece orchestra. So, if you want to celebrate Halloween by experiencing a tale of sex, lies, and potentially unintentional hilarity, buy your ticket here. You can watch the first of many…many chapters below.
