Becoming Dr. Ruth

This heartwarming one-woman show retells the incredible life of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, the pioneering radio and television sex therapist. 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, this biographical account is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth”.

Suggested for ages 14 and up.
