Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr were at the vanguard of the scientific community in Copenhagen until Hitler’s occupation of Denmark put a chill on their relationship. In 1941, with the Second World War in full swing, Heisenberg paid a visit to Bohr in Copenhagen … and the details of their encounter remain shrouded in mystery. Michael Frayn’s Tony-award-winning play Copenhagen imagines the possibilities of their historic visit, as the two men are joined in their reminiscences by Bohr’s wife, confidant, and sounding-board, Margrethe. Starring Alfred Molina, David Krumholtz, and Shannon Cochran.
