Out of the Closet

R. Kelly's epic hip-hopera arrives at The Castro Theatre


Once upon a time in the '90s, it seemed that R. Kelly was destined to be remembered for the most memorable song from the Space Jam soundtrack.

Then came Trapped in the Closet, and the world was forever changed.

Bring your boo and get ready for the greatest 120 minutes of your life with Trapped in the Closet: The Interactive Sing-Along, going down at The Castro Theatre this Friday through Sunday.

Start by stretching those vocal cords with a special dance party warm up comprised of R. Kelly classics including "Step in the Name of Love" and — of course — "Ignition (Remix)" before moving along to the main event.

Too busy to learn the lyrics beforehand? Don't worry, it's captioned. Leaving you plenty of brain space to explore such burning questions as Wouldn't shooting someone through a closed closet door cause more problems than it solves? and Can Pimp Lucious turn around his pimping ways?

Especially since the act is free of urine jokes.
