EXCLUSIVE Photo Coverage: Dr. Ruth Hosts BECOMING DR. RUTH Book Signing

In celebration of the 50th off-Broadway performance of Becoming Dr. Ruth, Dr. Ruth K. Westheimer hosted a special book signing session and talkback at off-Broadway's Westside Theatre (407 W. 43rd Street) yesterday, November 27. BroadwayWorld was there and brings you exclusive coverage below.

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer 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 the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became "Dr. Ruth", America's most famous sex therapist.
