These two actors show how Bohr and Heisenberg were
the odd couple of physics - one deliberate and the
other quick, both in thought and movement. Their fine
performances illustrate the creativity of such a
collaboration and also show the tensions that come with
being on opposing sides.Their portrayals are suitably

away from personality to the business of the
evening--confronting Williams' ideas.
