Re: “Copenhagen

I saw Copenhagen at Common Ground in Durham last Saturday night and loved it! I highly recommend it.
The seating was set up as a square with seats on all four sides (of course with spaces for the entrances and exits of the actors). The only props were 3 chairs that the actors brought in themselves plus steady spotlighting. During the performance, the actors moved the chairs to the next configuration at the same time as they were delivering lines either to other actors or to the audience. I found this staging to be very effective theater-in-the-round. John Honeycutt (Neils Bohr) and Brook North (Werner Heisenberg) were very convincing as a "once-upon-a-time mentor-apprentice" duo who were now two scientists of equal gravitas. Margrethe Bohr (Bonne Roe) created a wonderful performance as the devoted, intelligent wife keeping a buffer between the two men who varied between great affection and cold scorn for each other.
The high emotions throughout were understandable as the stake in this two-man poker game was Hilter getting the atomic bomb!
