hit play follows the adventures of Eugene Morris Jerome and his fellow Army
inductees as they struggle through basic training near Biloxi, Mississippi, in
1943. An aspiring writer who sees himself as an outsider observing the
craziness around him, Eugene hopes to somehow remain “neutral ... like
Switzerland.” He spends much of his free time recounting conversations and
impressions in his journal, feeling a little ashamed for betraying the “secret
and private thoughts’’ of his fellow soldiers.
Blues is both heartwarming and funny.”
