What do you get when you add quantum physics to the atomic bomb? Copenhagen! If that doesn't seem to add up, maybe Stage West in fair Fort Worth can make sense of it. Meet Niels Bohr, arguably the father of quantum physics, and Werner Heisenberg, the man who attempted to create the atomic bomb for the Nazis. The two scientists--Heisenberg, a German, and Bohr, half-Jewish--put their minds together in a secret meeting, but that's when things get mysterious. All that is publicly known about this clandestine convergence is that Bohr would never speak to Heisenberg again afterward. Was it a matter of moral judgment that lead to their separation, or just a scientific disagreement? Did their rendezvous affect the outcome of World War II? The questions have been debated among historians for decades. Save yourself the brain cells and go see the interpretation for yourself in this Tony award-winning play. Copenhagen runs through March 21 at Stage West, 821 W. Vickery Blvd. in Fort Worth. Tickets are $24 to $30. For tickets and showtimes, call 817-784-9378 or visit stagewest.org.
