Open Tab Productions is proud to present the Bay Area premiere of the hit comedy Assistance, the second offering in playwright Leslye Headland’s “Seven Deadly Sins” series, directed by Ben Euphrat. Assistance will open March 2nd, 2013 at the NOH Space Theater in San Francisco’s Mission District. First run off Broadway in 2008, Assistance has played to sell-out crowds in NYC and Los Angeles and was recently optioned by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay for development into a sitcom for NBC this fall.
What do Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump, and Anna Wintour have in common? They all need assistance! Loosely based on Headland’s own experience with Weinstein, this razor-sharp comedy chronicles the lives of six young assistants whose lives are an endless series of humiliations at the hands of their hellacious boss.
Open Tab Productions
OpenTab Productions is a new theatre company focused on creating relatable, approachable theatre. Formed by veteran actors Alex Plant, Matt Ingle and Ben Euphrat, the company is dedicated to presenting high quality productions that are honest, funny, sexy, raw, and sometimes raunchy. Frustrated with the deliberately and off-puttingly avant-garde and weird-for-weird’s-sake nature of some local theater, the three formed OpenTab to create shows that the average person can enjoy.
