【戲劇】QED

剛好這禮拜的演出,只到週日。

QED (quantum electrodynamics,量子電動力學)是一齣有關物理學家費因曼的劇作,現正在麻州康橋演出,對學物理的人來說應該很有吸引力,甚至,對看過他「你管別人怎麼想?」、「別鬧了費曼先生」這暢銷書的讀者也是。

引用一位老師的話如下
"I have not yet seen it, but I think I have good reasons to believe that it will be excellent. First, I saw both the 2006 staged reading and the 2007 full production of Alan Lightman's "Einstein's Dreams," by the Catalyst Collaborative, and both were excellent. Second, this play is directed by Jon Lipsky, who last year directed the
Boston Playwrights Theater production of Leslie Epstein's "King of the Jews," which I thought was one of the most powerful theater productions I have ever seen. (It received a glowing review in The Theater Mirror,

It's unfortunate that this play had only a short run, and as far as I know has not yet been performed anywhere else.)

演出只有短短幾天,殊為可惜,有機會觀賞的人別忘了每晚演出之後會有著名的物理學家帶領與觀眾的座談,例如週三第一場是由寫「愛因斯坦的夢」的艾倫.賴特曼教授擔綱,週五晚上由1990年諾貝爾物理學家得主Jerome Friedman,週六晚上則是一位研究科學史的教授,我想去,我想會非常有趣!

看完了,結果錯過有對談的幾場。不是火花四射的演出,演員也…不太像我在影片中看過的Feynman,他演的不錯,但說服力沒有強到克服我從國中以來就先入為主的印象。

劇本成功的結合了他一生的故事,對於看過他書的人來講有點回味的作用。

但因為主角的關係,看的時候,還是在中間幾度讓我自己太emotional。總之是一次不錯的經驗。
