Becoming Dr. Ruth TICKETS - Off-Broadway

— A new comedy telling the story of celebrated sex therapist Dr. Ruth's life.


Everyone knows Dr. Ruth from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a scout and sniper, to her struggles to succeed as a single mother coming to America, Becoming Dr. Ruth is filled with humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth.”

*Please note: The theater for Becoming Dr. Ruth is located on the 2nd floor and is accessible by stairs only.
