Event Notes

×

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 Jewish 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 remarkable Jewish woman who found her own unique place in the world.

Content Warning: This play discusses sex, but not in a lewd manner. There are a few mentions of sexual organs, using their proper, anatomical names. There are graphic descriptions of the trauma of war. Also, Dr. Ruth was a holocaust survivor and discusses her experience, which may be upsetting for some audience members.
