R. KELLY 101
This may be your best chance to learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about one of Chicago’s most brilliant and incomprehensible musical figures.
Librarian and writer Jenny Benevento will take us through the many downfalls and triumphs in Kells’ more than 20-year career.
Then we will screen the work the man may well be known best for; “Trapped in the Closet,” in its entirety (chapters 1-22). Commentary and insight will be provided by Benevento along with film critic and musician Ed Crouse and Jake Austen of Roctober magazine and Chic-a-go-go.
