REVIVAL is a spiritual folk-rock performance that speaks to urgent moral issues of our day. It features original story-driven music by Kristen Plylar-Moore performed by a small ensemble of singers and instrumentalists. Rooted largely in Hebrew biblical texts, the music expresses themes of love and justice, and envisions a world grounded in compassion and dignity for everyone. REVIVAL has been performed over the course of the last year in venues around NYC including the 14th St. Y’s Tikkun Leil Shavuot, WOW Café Theater, Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, and Town & Village Synagogue. An album of the show’s music was recently released in the summer of 2018, and garnered coverage in notable publications including Moment MagazineTikkun DailyLilith Magazineand Tablet Magazine's Jewcy.comTo hear clips from the recently-released album, please visit
