Then they have to take their bows, go home to their various partners and come back the next night to desire all over again. Faking true love: How do they do it? Sitting outside the Delacorte on a sweaty afternoon, slugging water and dressed in casual rehearsal wear, the four actors described a process that involves a particular blend of practice and experiment, memory and imagination. Chemistry isn’t always automatic, said Ms. Ashford: “You use your tools as an actor. You create that chemistry.
Your most difficult one? When people get up in your face and yell at you, call you names. My own personal journey has been: I’m going to make every question a great question and to see what I can find. Because being a black woman in America, anger and bitterness can crush you. Got to build up my talkback muscles. We were doing “Father Comes Home From the Wars.” This one woman, bless her heart, she said, “I saw ‘Topdog/ Underdog’ and this play is so much better. What happened?” Everyone got quiet.
“I should challenge Big Bird to a cage match,” Richard “Bo” Dietl rasps from behind his desk in a cluttered corner office of his P.I. firm, Beau Dietl & Associates, on the fiftieth floor of One Penn Plaza, rolling his eyes at my mention of New York mayor Bill de Blasio’s name.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
