Becoming Dr. Ruth

Mainstage Theatre JUNE 25, 2021

The incredible journey of the girl who fled Nazi Germany and became Americans’ most famous sex therapist

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer as America’s most famous sex therapist. Few know her incredible journey to get there. Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who fled the Nazis in the Kindertransport, joined the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, struggled as a single mother newly-arrived in America – and eventually became “Dr. Ruth”, America’s Sex Therapist. A triumphant and heartwarming story of a woman who found her own unique place in the world.

Tickets are $70.
