On March 2, in connection with the play Copenhagen’s Washington DC run, a daylong symposium was held that reviewed the science, the history, and the theatrical aspects of the real events and their artistic representation. Shown here at a reception the previous evening are (l to r): Jochen H. Heisenberg, the son of Werner Heisenberg; Hank Stratton, who plays Heisenberg in Copenhagen; Mariette Hartley, who plays Niels Bohr’s wife Margrethe; Len Cariou, who plays Niels Bohr; and Vilhelm A. Bohr, son of Aage Bohr and grandson of Niels Bohr. A picture of Werner Heisenberg and Niels Bohr in conversation hangs behind them.

The three sessions of the symposium were recorded. To order the set of three tapes (about 2 hours each) send a check, made payable to “The Graduate Center”, for $35 (this includes postage in the US), to this address: Brian Schwartz, The Graduate Center, 365 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10016
