BWW Reviews: NJT's Fascinating BECOMING DR. RUTHBWW Reviews: NJT's Fascinating BECOMING DR. RUTH
by Chris Gibson - Dec 20, 2014

Few people reach that status in life where all you have to do is hear their name, or voice, and you know exactly who they are, but Dr. Ruth Westheimer is certainly one of those individuals that have reached that level of fame. Her place in history is undeniable, and she's definitely someone whose journey is inspiring and worthy of inclusion in The New Jewish Theatre's 'chai', or 18th season, which celebrates life. If there is anyone who could truly be called a survivor, but maybe would better be described as a 'thriver', because she seems to have an uncanny drive to succeed, it would be her. NJT's presentation of Mark St. Germain's BECOMING DR. RUTH is a fascinating tour through the highlights and lowlights she dealt with on her rise to becoming a cultural icon, and it's a very entertaining and emotional piece of theatre that should not be missed.
