'That '70s Show' actress trades disco for sex advice in new play

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.Dr. Ruth shared the stage Thursday with the actress who is portraying her in a new play chronicling the sex therapist's life.

The play charts Dr. Ruth's journey from a 10-year-old orphaned Holocaust survivor who fled the Nazis to her rise as America's arguably foremost sex expert.
