R&B singer R. Kelly’s zany and wildly popular "hip hopera," "Trapped in the Closet,” might be heading to the Broadway stage.
Kelly revealed the latest chapters of his operatic, serial narrative of songs and music videos -- which he’s worked on for the last five years and which debut on IFC Friday -- to a live audience Monday at Landmark’s Sunshine Cinema in Manhattan.
He also dropped the B-bomb: an offer to bring the narrative to the stage in a performance he may even appear in, according to the Associated Press.
The idea would be "to transform it into a Broadway version, that's what I'm working on," said Kelly, who also stressed how much fun he’s been having with the project. "I don't have a job, so I sit in the studio all day and think of stuff to do and this is just something stupid I've done that's been successful for me. I'm having a lot of fun with it," he said.
