'Unspeakable': the life of Richard Pryor

"Unspeakable," an inside look at the life of comedian and social critic Richard Pryor, stars James Murray Jackson Jr. and E. Faye Butler. It premiered in Chicago on Oct. 6 at the Broadway Playhouse.

Jackson, who co-wrote "Unspeakable", said the idea for the show was sparked from a suggestion in an acting workshop in 2001.
