Critic Reviews (4)

The New York Times
April 14th, 2012
For a previous production

"Make no mistake: Rain Pryor, the star of the autobiographical solo show “Fried Chicken and Latkes,” is not just defined by her father, the comedian Richard Pryor. She most definitely is her own woman, but she sure does one hell of an impersonation of her dad. There are many dimensions to this robust, ebullient performer, all evident in this trim production, which sails by in an effervescent 70 minutes."

Theatermania
August 6th, 2012
For a previous production

"There are compelling portraits of herself and her late father, the comedian Richard Pryor, still waiting to be discovered...Although Pryor does possess a nice, warm velvety belt in her voice, neither her lyrics nor her confessional slam poetry are all that well-written...This leaves us wanting to simply connect to her story, as well as that of her parents. She teases us with a revelation or two. These tantalizing bits, however, drop in out of nowhere and, just as quickly, disappear with little or no exploration."

February 3rd, 2012
For a previous production

"Rain Pryor has a fascinating story to tell...She is great with voices, giving each character a distinct and realistic personality and sound...I may not have known what to expect from "Fried Chicken and Latkes," but what I got was a very entertaining show, some terrific insight into Richard and Rain Pryor's lives, and a deep appreciation for just how talented Ms. Pryor is. I understand the show will be coming back in the fall, but as soon as it comes back, I suggest you get tickets."

For a previous production

"Rain Pryor grew up to be a gifted entertainer, turning the very difficulties she encountered into her strengths...As it turns out, she has a beautiful singing voice and a considerable gift for impersonations, recreating those formidable forbears who affected her life. Humor and poignancy mix in equal measure, as Rain recreates these characters."
