While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.

Since the times of Ancient Greece, when “society” and “the State” were subsumed into and joined in the term, “polis,” Theater and Law/Ethics have interacted and relied on each other.
In Greece, drama tended to serve socio-political, cultural,religious, and other functions. It was a device for presenting and addressing serious and important public ethical, religious, and political issues, thereby building citizenship and engagement of the artists with public leaders and members of the public, in works by Aristophanes, Euripides, Sophocles, and Aeschylus.
Eastern and Western Synergies and Imaginations, an edited volume in a forthcoming Brill series East and West: Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions, is now inviting submissions.
The age of gobalisation has witnessed, and is witnessing, increasing activities across border and interactions between nations, especially between the East and the West. Multi-dimensional communication and collaboration between the East and the West from the Age of Sail to the Modern Era are often narrated and re-created in print and on stage.
