She's a New Yorker did a summer run with the Barrington Stage Company, and has reprised her role as Dr. Ruth for a special limited engagement from Sept. 19 to Oct. 7.
Following a sold-out run of 36 performances from June 19 through July 21, where over 4000 patrons attended the world premiere of Dr. Ruth, All the Way, Barrington Stage Company, the award-winning regional theatre in downtown Pittsfield, under the leadership of Julianne Boyd, Artistic Director, and Tristan Wilson, Managing Director, is proud to present a fall return of Dr. Ruth, All The Way by Mark St. Germain, directed byJulianne Boyd.
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist but few 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, Dr. Ruth, All the Way is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became "Dr. Ruth."
