Review: 'Becoming Dr. Ruth'

From sniper to sex educator
Everyone loves a good origin story -- a true rags-to-riches, underdog-beats-the-odds-tale can be almost as satisfying as good sex. Through October 21 JCC CenterStage and Bristol Valley Theatre present a retelling of the journey of Dr. Ruth Westheimer, from her childhood as a German Jew pre-Holocaust to respected American sex therapist.
