Martin Jarvis stages the 1998 drama that will run through Nov. 20 at UCLA's James Bridges Theater. Susan A. Loewenberg produces the engagement.

Here's how LATW bills the 1941-set work: "A world at war, two scientists, and a meeting that may well have determined who would create the most dangerous weapon mankind has ever known. How different would the world have looked had the Nazis been first to build an atomic bomb?"

Three-time Tony nominee Molina (Red, Fiddler on the Roof, Art) plays Niels Bohr, with Krumholtz (Conversations With My Father, "Numb3rs") as Werner Karl Heisenberg and Cochran ("The Ring," "Witness Protection") as Bohr's wife, Margrethe.

Frayn's plays also include Benefactors, Noises Off, Wild Honey, Democracy and Afterlife.

All LATW performances are recorded and broadcast on LATW's nationally syndicated radio theatre series, "The Play's the Thing."
