More Info The production will stream on Showtix4U.com on demand; tickets are $35-$54.

Most know Ruth Westheimer as the spunky little German woman who advocated with twinkly humor for sexual freedom during the late 1990s. Few know her whole story of losing her family in the Holocaust, her emigration to Israel where she became a sniper for the Hagana, or the complex personal journey that led her to fame and celebrity status.

In Mark St. Germain’s compelling solo showcase, an older Ruth is moving, and she graciously invites the audience into her box-strewn living room, chatting in her inimitable fashion while revealing the often-astonishing details of her colorful life. Six-time Tony and Emmy nominee Tovah Feldshuh, (Broadway’s Golda’s Balcony), (TV’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and The Walking Dead), deftly inhabits the warm, wise, witty persona of the beloved media figure.
