Chicago – Project 1 Voice – 6.20.11 – Congo Square Theater


PROJECT1VOICE is a national grassroots movement designed to support and cultivate artistic excellence, creativity and innovation among African-American theatre organizations.  Along with preserving the legacies of these theaters and those of African-American playwrights. It is our mission to engage people of every age with a continuum of experiences that reflect the virtuosity, creative and inclusive spirit of the arts.


PROJECT1VOICE was created by Erich McMillan-McCall in 2010 after observing that many theater organizations around the country were financially strapped and barely keeping afloat in this harsh economic climate. The problem was magnified even more among historically African-American theater organizations, which have been the mainstay of employment for many minority theater professionals. With this in mind, Erich partnered with like-minded people and thus PROJECT1VOICE was born.

Join Chicago’s premiere theater company, Congo Square Theater as they participate in a groundbreaking national event to promote, support and fund African American theater companies through the efforts of Project 1 Voice.

This is a benefit and fundraiser to support Congo Square Theater and its fantastic ensemble.  Join us!
