Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth”, AmericaŹ¼s most famous sex therapist.

*Due to health and safety concerns arising from the spread of coronavirus, we are postponing this performance. Please check back at a later time for tickets. Thank you for your understanding and support.
