This science fiction classic needs a "big screen," even on audio. The dazzling music, sound and special effects bring the listener to the pulsing, eerie center of the machine-dominated year 2027. With earphones the listener wants more space to hear and experience the fanatsy and eerie reality. Metropolis, a Hugo Award-winner, is best known as the 1930's film prophesying the decay of humanism and self-control. Ziggurat has gone back to the original novel and adapted it to a spectacular radio play. A cast of at least a dozen actors contributes voices of varying ages and styles. The program rivets the listener. This program belongs with Welles's War of the Worlds and other well-loved futurist classics. R.F.W.
