Last week, a group of McNulty students, along with Program Director Paul Angiolillo, PhD, and Faculty Mentor Christina King Smith, PhD, headed to Center City to catch the Lantern Theater Company’s production of Copenhagen, written by Michael Frayn and directed by Kittson O’Neill. The play explores a fascinating mystery: why did German physicist Werner Heisenberg visit his old mentor and Danish counterpart Neils Bohr in 1941 while their countries were at war? To share atomic secrets or to say goodbye to an old friend. Each year, the Lantern produces one play set in the world of science and technology, and the McNulty Program hasn’t missed one in the last three years.
Copenhagen has just been extended until February 18, so catch it if you can. Nine McNulty student reviewers give it a big thumbs up!
