Ms. Pryor wrote, created and co-produced, “Fried Chicken & Latkes,” as well as contributing her own original music and lyrics. She drew heavily from her personal experience as the daughter of black comedian, Richard Pryor and her Jewish mother. The Los Angeles Times bestowed a “Critics Choice” on her for her work, hailing her singing and sense of timing as rare gifts.

Rain has played to sold out crowds and standing ovations every night at her performances at the Canon Theater in Beverly Hills, CA, and again at the Culture Project in New York. The audiences and the ovations kept on coming as Rain performed her show all over the country.

But her work on “Fried Chicken & Latkes” is not done. She is currently working a film version and cast album of her show. 2005 is proving to bring an avalanche of accolades for the talented Ms. Pryor and “Fried Chicken & Latkes.” She has garnered four NAACP Theatre Award nominations for Best Female Performer Equity, Best Original Playwright Equity, Best Direction and Best Sound Design. Rain took home the Best Female Performer Equity. She also won the 2005 Invisible Theatre’s Goldie Klein Gues Artist Award. Ms. Pryor is dedicated to the fight for a cure of Multiple Sclerosis. Her dedication has her traveling across the country as an MS Lifelines Ambassador educating and supporting those with MS and their family and friends.

For patrons with special needs, the Stockton Performing Arts Center offers wheelchair accessible seating, large type programs, and listening assistive devices. Please identify any needs you may have when making a reservation.
