“In tense, fractious times—like our current moment—all art is political. But even during those times when politics and the future of our country itself are not the source of constant worry and anxiety, art is still political. We keep revisiting Shakespeare’s Macbeth because ruthless political ambition does not belong to any particular era. And we listen to Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific, as Lieutenant Cable sings about racism, ‘You’ve got to be carefully taught.’ It’s all art. It’s all political,” says Miranda, American actor, composer, lyricist, and writer and a winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Grammy, Emmy, and Tony Awards, whose best known work is Hamilton.

All are invited to the one-hour service, sponsored by the Upper Delaware Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, which will be held in Room 102 of the Narrowsburg Union, Narrowsburg, NY. Directions can be found at www.uduuf.org.
