Atomic Bombers

Russell Vandenbroucke

In 1943, something strange is going on in the New Mexican desert. By night, the starkly beautiful canyons of Los Alamos fill with the sound of exploding graphite – and by day, the crackle of scientific brainpower. Fifty years after Hiroshima, Atomic Bombers takes us into those secretive canyons to meet the cadre of brilliant scientists who worked there. With wisecracking physicist Dr. Richard Feynman as our guide, the race to the atom bomb comes alive as a very human endeavor, filled with humor, playfulness and dread. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Larry Cox, Jeannie Elias, Robin Gammell, Jon Matthews, Phillip Mershon, Danny Mora, Wolf Muser, Lisa Jane Persky, John Vickery, Tom Virtue and Ron West.
