WAMU 88.5 : The Kojo Nnamdi Show

Filed Under:

Rain Pryor

Rain Pryor grew up in the shadow of one of the biggest names in show business -- she's the daughter of the late comedian Richard Pryor. But she's long since earned a name for herself in theater and film, a name that a local theater company in Baltimore is hoping will rejuvenate its venue. Pryor joins Kojo in studio to chat about her work and vision for the Strand Theater Company, which just started its fifth season.
