The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Assistance at Playwrights Horizons

Ever been an assistant?  Ever wanted to be an assistant?  Ever had an assistant?

Well, there’s a new play just for you . . . and we’re giving away two free tickets!

Assistance, by Leslye Headland, the writer who brought us the much heralded Bachelorette,  is “the story of young assistants enduring endless humiliations at the hands of their hellacious uber-magnate boss.”


I wonder what Producer inspired this story.

(And no comments from any of you on my staff . . . or I’ll get out the “Who’s Your Boss?” stick.)

Here’s how to win two tickets to see Assistance:

Comment below on the craziest job you’ve ever done for someone else.  And if you’ve never been an assistant, or worked for anyone, well then, you get to comment on the craziest thing you’ve ever asked someone to do.

I’ll go first.

When I was in college, and freelancin’ as a Production Assistant, Stage Manager, and whatever else anyone wanted me to do because I didn’t care what it was as long as it was in the theater . . . my current General Manager of Godspell, Charlotte Wilcox, who was working on Grease at the time, hired me to drive Adrian Zmed’s golf clubs to Boston.   (Ok, maybe that’s only a 6.5 on the crazy scale, but it’s a definite 9 on the random scale).

Craziest assistant-like job wins!  Go!
