Reverend Billy & The Stop Shopping Choir
Show DescriptionReverend Billy & The Stop Shopping Choir sprang, full throated from the forehead of New York City a decade ago. They have been performing their remarkable show in fields, parking lots, theaters, malls, churches, government buildings and bank lobbies all over the world ever since. Serious political satire and driving gospel music invite audiences into a state of euphoric soul searching. In recent years the company has turned their attention toward climate change and the crisis of the earth. The Stop Shopping Choir's third full length CD Earthalujah! is just completed. Reverend Billy is the recipient of an Obie award, The Alpert award for theater and has been arrested more than 50 times.
Directed by Savitri D., music director Nehemiah Luckett. The Stop Shopping Choir is a 35 voice choir accompanied by the 5 piece Not Buying it Band.
