POLITICS, PASSIONS AND PHYSICS — Legendary Danish physicist Niels Bohr (Josh Zeitlin, left), his wife (Jenn Onofrio) and Bohr’s German counterpart and former student Werner Heisenberg (Brad Wilson) meet in Nazi-occupied Copenhagen, September 1941, to discuss the atomic bomb and the future of the world in Michael Frayn’s speculative historical drama Copenhagen, at Theatre Intime on the Princeton University campus through April 3.

Dramatic Speculations: What If Hitler Had Gotten the Atom Bomb? Two Great Physicists Shape the Course of History in “Copenhagen”

Donald Gilpin

In September 1941 Werner Heisenberg, renowned physicist and the leader of Germany’s project to develop an atomic bomb, traveled to Nazi-occupied Copenhagen and met with his former teacher, friend and colleague, the legendary Niels Bohr. Heisenberg went to dinner at the Bohrs’ house, and the two men, apparently to escape from hidden microphones, went for a short walk after dinner. Two years later Bohr, who was Jewish, fled Denmark and made his way to Los Alamos, New Mexico, where he worked on the Manhattan Project that developed the bomb by 1945. The Nazi atomic bomb program was halted by the Allied advance into Germany that same year.

Richardson Chamber Players Send the “Winter Winds” Away Sunday Afternoon With Confident Chamber Program

With March trying really hard to creep into spring, the Chamber Players offered a serene and unruffled program of chamber music in their home of Richardson Auditorium on Sunday afternoon. Eighteen instrumentalists, both professional and student, crisply wended their way through music of several different periods to demonstrate very solid ensemble playing.
