Project 1 Voice Presents
A One Night Only Staged Reading of
The Colored Museum by George C. Wolfe
1Voice! 1Play! 1Day!
Project1VOICE, Inc. (P1V) is a 501(c) (3), nonprofit performing arts service organization based in New York City. Its mission is to support and promote the American theater specifically black playwrights and theater companies. The company was founded and is now led by Erich McMillan-McCall, who also serves as one of the company’s three trustees. P1V’s core activity is the coordination of an international, same-day, staged reading series that revives and reintroduces, neglected—forgotten and/or under-appreciated—seminal works written by black playwrights for the American theater. This collaborative community-engagement event called Project1VOICE/1PLAY/1DAY, takes place on the third Monday in June. It serves a combination fundraiser, audience development, community engagement, and pr/marketing tool. It also serves as a recommitment and rededication to local arts organizations.
The success of Project1VOICE/1PLAY/1DAY has prompted other programs. These include (a) P1V 2.0–an Online Book Club, (b) P1V Conversations with Pioneers, (c) P1V HONORS and (d) P1V Workshops.
