“Why did he come to Copenhagen?” This seemingly innocent question launches Michael Frayn’s cerebral and nail-bitingly tense three-character historical drama. The stakes could hardly be higher, as atomic physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg meet to potentially determine the future of the world. Lantern’s intimate setting is ideal for this conversation-driven piece, and the theater has a fine company on hand: Charles McMahon, Sally Mercer and Paul L. Nolan, under Kittson O’Neill’s direction.
