Description

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 to Switzerland to joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mother newly-arrived in America, playwright Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman's untold story. Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became "Dr. Ruth," America’s most famous sex therapist. The show stars Atlanta favorite, Judy Leavell, as Dr. Ruth.
