About Becoming Dr. Ruth

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

Returning to the stage in New York City this fall, six-time Tony- and Emmy-nominated actor Tovah Feldshuh stars in a tour-de-force theatrical show Becoming Dr. Ruth, presented Off-Broadway at Edmond J. Safra Hall at the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

The one-woman show, written by Mark St. Germain and directed by Bay Street Theater’s Artistic Director Scott Schwartz, chronicles the life of noted psychologist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, from her early years fleeing Nazi Germany, living as an orphan in Switzerland, to her service in the Israeli armed forces as a sharpshooter, and her later life and career in New York.

Delightful, Riveting, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you know how good Tovah always is & you'd enjoy a look at Dr Ruth's life-the highs and lows, the humor and sadness, with useful projections.

Don’t see it if you do not like one person biographical shows, do not appreciate Dr Ruth's contributions to society or are triggered by holocaust stories.

Masterful, Riveting, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like one-person shows or if you want to see a masterful interpretation by Tovah Feldshuh. She really is remarkable in this role.

Don’t see it if the one-person format doesn't appeal to you. The set-up is rather awkward, as is some of the business of packing. But excellent acting.
