The Richard Pryor-based ‘Unspeakable’ cancels Chicago run

The Chicago premiere of “Unspeakable,” the autobiographical show based on the life of the late comedian Richard Pryor, has been cancelled. Originally slated to open Oct. 16 at the Royal George Theatre, a spokesperson for the production cited the show’s loss of promised major funding as the reason for its cancellation.

Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.
