Reverend Billy Talen 
Writer and Secular Preacher
Church of Stop ShoppingIn 1994, author, actor / director and activist Billy Talen moved to New York to begin his performance career in as “Reverend”, joining other sidewalk preachers on Times Square. Specializing in exorcisms of sweatshop companies, and opposing the Disneyfication of the neighborhood, he set up his portable pulpit at the door of the Mouse.  Soon, “moral soap operas,” also called “Retail Interventions” were staged inside the chain stores, principally Disney, the GAP, Nike, and Starbucks.  The preacher was soon accompanied by singers, and began staging whole “Worships” in the tradition of ritual-based interactive plays of the day such as Tony and Tina’s Wedding, Late-Nite Catechism, Blue Man Group and de la Guarda.  The Reverend’s developing theology became the “Church of Stop Shopping,” founded on a resistance to consumerism and a defense of independent shops, community gardens and local economies.

Under the direction of Savitri D, the Reverend and Choir have toured in Europe, Africa, South America and throughout North America. William Talen has won the OBIE Award, The Dramalogue Award, The Historic Districts Council’s Preservation Award (for leading demonstrations to save Manhattan’s Poe House) and has been jailed more than 50 times.
