Big Dawg Productions and Panache Theatrical Productions are proud to announce that they will be co-presenting the one woman show "Becoming Dr. Ruth", by Mark St. Germain, starring Panache co-founder Holli Saperstein and directed by Big Dawg Artistic Director Steve Vernon.

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 sniper, to her struggle to succeed as a single mother newly-arrived in America, playwright Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman's untold story in this one woman show starring Holli Saperstein.

A remarkable woman in her own right, Holli is the co-founder and managing director of Panache, with numerous stage and film credits to her name. 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!
