It is 1997 and pioneering radio and television sex therapist Dr. Karola Ruth Siegel is packing up her apartment in Washington Heights. As she does so, she shares the fascinating and moving events that led her to become America’s most famous sex therapist.

From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport and joining the Haganah in Jerusalem as a sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mother newly arrived in America, Ruth’s astounding true story is full of moments of heartbreak, hope, and triumph.

Farmers Alley Theatre is excited to welcome back Kathy Mulay (Bright Star, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder) to direct this production. Becoming Dr. Ruth stars Diane Wasnak in the titular role. Diane has performed professionally all across the country and made her Broadway debut in Busker Alley starring Glenn Close. Diane also starred in Mystère for Cirque du Soleil. She is internationally renowned for her mime and movement work and as part of the first American female circus clown duo.

Written by award-winning playwright Mark St. Germain, you'll surely be moved by this life-affirming (and a little bit sexy) one-woman tour-de-force of a play!

Contains adult themes.
