Copenhagen

Fri., Oct. 18 and Fri., Oct. 25


Presented by Cesear's Forum in a limited engagement, the Tony Award-winning Copenhagen centers on an actual meeting that took place between the two great physicists, Germany's Werner Heisenberg and Denmark's Niels Bohr, in 1941, in occupied Denmark. The play is presented fictionally, "inside the heads" of three characters, as they relive their memories and speculate on the meaning, and consequences, of their actions. A deep dive into the difficulty of ever truly knowing oneself or others, Copenhagen is as much about philosophy as physics. Tonight's performance takes place at 8 in the intimate Kennedy's Down Under, in Playhouse Square. Tickets cost $18, and the show continues through Oct. 26. (Niesel) 216-241-6000
