Entertaining, Quirky, Disappointing, Banal, Ambitious

See it if Tovah is good as Dr Ruth. If you remember early 80s when she was relevant.

Don't see it if Does not go deep enough into her life. Writing is not great.

Delightful, Riveting, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you know how good Tovah always is & you'd enjoy a look at Dr Ruth's life-the highs and lows, the humor and sadness, with useful projections.

Don't see it if you do not like one person biographical shows, do not appreciate Dr Ruth's contributions to society or are triggered by holocaust stories. Read more

Relevant, Resonant, Funny, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you want to see an amazing and riveting performance by Tovah Feldshuh of the equally amazing life of Dr Ruth. Powerful and often very funny.

Don't see it if you don't like one person shows or talk of the holocaust. Her early life as child was very unpleasant during WWII. Read more

Masterful, Riveting, Relevant, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you like one-person shows or if you want to see a masterful interpretation by Tovah Feldshuh. She really is remarkable in this role.

Don't see it if the one-person format doesn't appeal to you. The set-up is rather awkward, as is some of the business of packing. But excellent acting.
