"R. Kelly's Fantastically Absurd Trapped in the Closet Is Coming to Broadway"

Posted by on Tue, Nov 20, 2012 at 12:29 PM

R. Kelly premiered the next installment of Trapped in the Closet last night in New York (which airs this weekend on IFC), and the singer also held a Q&A session after the show, where he revealed the possibility of a Broadway show:

But most interesting detail of all was Kelly's announcement that he'd "just got an offer from Broadway to do a Broadway version."

"Would you star in it?" nudged his interviewer. "Are we gonna see you singing on Broadway?"

"Some of the cities, I can't guarantee all of them, and that's what's being negotiated right now because it takes a lot of time to do these chapters—I'm the only one in the studio writing these chapters," he reminded us. But he's already started adapting the script for the stage, he said. Think "Bridget," "midget," and the Macy's Day Parade.

I would go to that. I would absolutely, definitely, without a doubt go see that.
