Many of us know Dr. Ruth Westheimer as America’s favorite sex therapist in the 1980s and ‘90s. She opened our eyes to a new way of viewing ourselves and our relationships — but few of us have heard the story of this remarkable woman’s journey. In this heartwarming portrait, Dr. Ruth narrates the harrowing and fascinating details of her life from the tragic separation of her family during the Holocaust to her experiences as an Israeli sniper to her struggles with balancing work, higher education and single motherhood in America. Becoming Dr. Ruth is a humorous, affectionate and illuminating one-woman show that’s full of grit and triumph.
Becoming Dr. Ruth is a co-production with Theater J.
