Rain Pryor, the daughter of the comedian Richard Pryor (who died in 2005), stars in this effervescent solo show, which recounts her upbringing in a biracial household (her mother was Jewish) in Beverly Hills, Calif. Ms. Pryor, who sings and portrays a range of characters (including, poignantly, her father in a spot-on impression) is an ebullient performer with a robust singing voice. She lives in Baltimore now, but her outsize personality is built for Broadway.
Fried Chicken & Latkes, teaches us that living an authentic life is not about “where do I stand?"...it’s about “Here, I stand.” It will take you back in time and move you forward making you laugh, think and cry.
