As the world continues to be amazed by the return of R. Kelly’s hip hopera TRAPPED IN THE CLOSET to the IFC Channel Chicago is finding new ways to pay homage to Sylvester, Rufus, Cathy, Gwendolyn, Bridget, Big Man, Rosie the Nosy Neighbor, Twan and Pimp Lucius. So this Friday, November 16 and Saturday, November 17 at 11:59pm, we are teaming up with The Action Pack of Austin, Texas’ Alamo Drafthouse for an epic “Trapped in the Closet” Sing-Along at the Music Box Theatre, Chicago IL. The “Trapped in the Closet” Sing-A-Long will be a fully interactive cinematic experience complete with on-screen lyrics and, an R. Kelly dance party in between a showing of “Trapped in the Closet” chapters 1-22.

The Sing-A-Long at the Music Box Theatre will be emceed by Action Pack founder Henri Mazza who will introduce the music videos, instruct attendees on the proper use of spatulas, toy Berettas, and other props throughout the screening and sing-along, and dem?and that audience members stand up to “Step in the Name of Love.”

Sing-a-Long Trapped in the Closet

Purchase advance tickets online

In Trapped in the Closet, R. Kelly’s classic hip hopera, Kels takes on the role of Sylvester, who has a simple one-night stand with a preacher’s wife and then ends up in a web of preposterous lies and a series of outlandish plot twists ranging from used rubbers on his bed to an asthmatic midget male stripper who likes to hang out with a white chick named Bridget. Throughout all of these misadventures, the drama is played as fiercely straight as R. Kelly, and the tale is told through rhyme after rhyme after rhyme.

Over the years, some audiences have hailed Trapped in the Closet as the “Plan 9 From Outer Space of music videos,” while others have recognized it as the masterpiece from our generation’s greatest living R&B legend. But whichever camp you fall into, one thing is certain – there will be no better cinematic event this year than singing and dancing and playing with props in a theater full of other R. Kelly fans at the fully interactive R. Kelly’s Trapped in the Closet Sing-Along.
