Dr. Ruth, All the Way, the biographical play about the famous sex expert began a world-premiere engagement at Barrington Stage Company's St. Germain Stage on June 19.
Debra Jo Rupp ("That 70's Show") stars as Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
Artistic director Julianne Boyd directs the play, now extended to July 21, which is billed this way: "Everyone knows the pioneering radio and television sex therapist Dr. Ruth but few know the incredible journey that preceded it. From fleeing the Nazis in the Kindertransport to joining the Haganah in Jerusalem, 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 Korola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became 'Dr. Ruth.'"
