Copenhagen - Theater J
Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater


By Michael Frayn

Directed by Eleanor Holdridge

January 5 — 29, 2017

In 1941, the German physicist Werner Heisenberg traveled to Copenhagen to meet his Danish counterpart, Niels Bohr. Old friends and colleagues, now they find themselves on opposite sides in a world war and embroiled in a race to create the atom bomb. Why Heisenberg went to Copenhagen, and what he wanted to say to Bohr, are questions that have intrigued and divided historians and scientists ever since. 

Michael Frayn’s Tony Award-winning play about this historic meeting is a classic of modern drama—a meditation on friendship and moral responsibility, intellectually dazzling, and deeply moving that journeys through the realm of science and beyond. 

"The most invigorating and ingenious play of ideas in many a year. An electrifying work of art. - The New York Times

Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes, including 1 intermission
