About Becoming Dr. Ruth

Naomi Jacobson, who earned a Helen Hayes Award nomination for the role, returns to Theater J for an unforgettable, heart-warming evening of theater. This inventive production was a must-see event of the 2017-2018 DC theater season. Don’t miss the return of this triumphant and life-affirming story of a girl who found her own unique place in the world.
