Becoming Dr. Ruth by Mark St. Germain is playing one final week in the Keating Theatre. The show that The Sarasota Herald-Tribune says “Captures the energy, spirit and joy in life” will run through August 3.
Dr. Ruth Westheimer revisits her fascinating life after the death of her third husband. From her time as a young child in a Swiss orphanage to her time working as a celebrity sex therapist, Dr. Ruth approaches the chapters of her life with a charming sense of humor. A moving, funny portrayal of one woman’s determination to survive, thrive and keep learning.
“Illusions, magic tricks, humor, and storytelling”
Clearly Invisible… Magic Up Close with Carl Seiger is playing for one final week in the John C. Court Cabaret. Come see what The Observer calls a “Slick performance” now through August 3.
The show combines illusion, jazz, and storytelling. While reminiscing about his life as a magician, Seiger invites audiences to find out what’s up his sleeves as he performs sleight of hand up close. There is magic, and then there is Magic. Interactive in every sense of the word, Clearly Invisible combines illusion, music, and humor to stretch the boundaries of conventional theatre.

The U.S. Premiere of Taking Shakespeare by John Murrell opened this past week in the Gompertz Theatre and runs through August 17.
Who appreciates Shakespeare anymore? Murph sure doesn’t, and seeks out an older Shakespeare scholar, to bring the Bard’s words to life. This enchanting, eccentric journey creates a beautiful dichotomy between Shakespeare’s verse and today’s language. Is it possible for this avid video-game lover to love Shakespeare?
