"If the moments of reflection — augmented by Rob Siler’s effective projections of Nazi Germany scenes — show Dr. Ruth in melancholy spirits, well, that just adds to the feeling we are seeing the “real” woman behind the persona."
- Orlando Sentinel
"As Westheimer shares artifacts from her adventures, memories come to life in the form of lighting designer Rob Siler's projections, which extend across Bert Scott's yogurt-dipped drawing room set, transforming the Manhattan skyline into a window on a lost society."
-Orlando Weekly
"In fact, Ruth so thoroughly describes Fred and her relationship with him, that he actually seems like another character in the show. Plus, onstage projections of photos she is looking at, including those of Fred and her two children, as well as her parents and grandmother, make her family members come to life even more as she describes them."
