Becoming Dr. Ruth

Show Overview

Becoming Dr. Ruth
by Mark St Germain

Filled with the humor, honesty, and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the little girl who became "Dr. Ruth," America’s most famous sex therapist. Her incredible journey - from fleeing the Nazis in the Kinderstransport, to serving as a sniper in Jerusalem, to struggling to succeed as a single-mother newly arrived in America - is deftly illuminated in this laughter-filled and moving solo show starring LNT’s own Maura O’Brien (Always Patsy Cline, Sylvia) as Dr. Ruth..
