Pearlstein writes, "In Cue, language is literally foregrounded, as commonplace signs set the stage. Functioning as directorial prompts or signals, they manifest the contradictory and illusive presence of the director. The performer's responses follow, oppose, demonstrate or interpret as the soundtrack creates a further disjunction between suggestion and action."
