" ?NY Newsday. \n\nTHE STORY: As the New York Times outlines, "It is done almost as a comedy, yet it isn't quite. Jack Argue is the 'hero, ' the middle-class man from Connecticut who works for Muzeeka, a piped-music company that inflicts its bland tunes on all America. He is the man who has made it, who tries to assuage his conscience through hypocritical verbiage. There is a series of episodes?Argue chanting a hymn to a penny, Argue loving his wife, Argue loving a prostitute, Argue fighting in Vietnam. If he could have been wherever he chose to be, he says, he would have chosen to be an Etruscan, one of those ancient people who came and went 'a million years ago, ' 'a whole civilization danced out of the earth. ' Mr. Guare has written with thought, craftsmanship and beauty. His allusions are poetic?the traffic lights, for instance, that make the streets go from grass to blood. "
