Rain Pryor Presents ‘Fried Chicken & Latkes’

2015 January 12

You might want to see Rain Pryor’s show “Fried Chicken & Latkes” just because she’s the daughter of one of the greatest comics of all time, Richard Pryor. Then again, you may have read the rave reviews in the New York Times, which said, “There are many dimensions to this robust, ebullient performer, all evident in this trim production, which sails by in an effervescent 70 minutes.”

Both of those reasons are good enough for me. Rain, who grew up with a black father and a Jewish mother, recounts tales of her life and the characters in them in her one-woman show, which ran for more than a year off Broadway. The MJCCA, in partnership with Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company, presents “Fried Chicken & Latkes” this Thursday through Saturday. The show in Atlanta runs approximately two hours. To purchase tickets call 877-725-8849.
