“[Dr. Ruth’s] story is certainly a stirring one…[and this is] an illuminating portrait.” —The New York Times.

“Fascinating and heartbreaking… conveys Westheimer’s surprising dignity, courage, and resilience” — The New Yorker
This compelling play chronicles the remarkable journey of Karola Siegel, who became best known as Dr. Ruth Westheimer, an iconic sex therapist. Filled with remarkable stories of Dr. Ruth’s escape from the Nazis as a child, her time as a sniper in Jerusalem, and her courageous pursuit of success in America as a single mother, “Becoming Dr. Ruth” delivers humor, honesty, and a triumphant spirit. Come along as Dr. Ruth takes the audience on an uplifting adventure through her one-of-a-kind life story.
