WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fried Chicken and Latkes is Rain Pryor's award winning solo show based on her life. It is an irreverent and poignant look at racism in the late 60's early 70's. Rain completely wrote and created her show including adding some of her own original music and lyrics to the production. Rain was a Los Angeles Times "Critics Choice" and her singing voice and sense of timing were hailed as rare gifts. Fried Chicken and Latkes played to sold out crowds and standing ovations every night at the 375-seat Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills, CA, and repeated that success at the Culture Project in New York, Chicago, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, and Scotland. Growing up Black and Jewish gives Rain a unique perspective on race, religion and spirituality. She shares her views and has lead panel discussions on diversity in education and in the entertainment industry at Princeton University, The Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, Chicago and Baltimore.
