The Tower, about a woman fighting for her life on an operating table dreaming she is secretly rebuilding the Tower of Babel, received its West Coast premiere in 2004 in a production by The Son of Semele Ensemble. It was a Critic’s Choice in the LA Times where David Nicholls described it as “fascinating and challenging” … as it “layers elements of Joseph Chaikin, Pina Bausch, and William S. Burroughs to build an allegorical Babel-rouser of post-Internet import.” It was also a Critics Pick in the LA Weekly, and Jeff Favre of Backstage West said “Maguire’s words are the driving force, and the profound nature of this layered work will not soon be forgotten by anyone who experiences it.”

He wrote with composer Michael Gordon the science fiction opera Chaos. The New York Times described it as an “opera that romanticizes science as successfully as any work since Einstein on the Beach,” and whose “patterns add up brilliantly.”
