Becoming Dr. Ruth

America’s favorite sex therapist is back! Before she became Dr. Ruth Westheimer, Karola Siegel had to flee Germany in the Kindertransport, become a sniper in Jerusalem, and survive as a single mother in America. Naomi Jacobson, who earned a Helen Hayes Award nomination for the role, returns to Theater J for an unforgettable, heart-warming evening of theater. This inventive production was a must-see show of the 2017-2018 DC theater season. Don’t miss the return of this life-affirming story of a girl who found her own unique place in the world.

 

 “Jacobson is captivating from start to finish."
