Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust and Bay Street Theater for Opening Night and a dessert reception with Dr. Ruth and Tovah Feldshuh to celebrate 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.
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.
