The intersection of celebrity, justice and the media has always been one of the richest in American life. It’s a bottomless well of material for satirists, few of whom have succeeded quite as well as John Kander, Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, originators of “Chicago,” among the longest-running Broadway musicals.
This week, entering College of Marin’s James Dunn Theatre is a stunning experience. Onstage is one of the most beautiful sets you will ever encounter, an evocation of the Sahara desert by designer Ron Krempetz and scenic artist Dhyanis Carniglia, its exaggerated sand dunes reaching into a deep blue night sky. Surrounded by images of pock-marked moons and asteroids, it promises an evening of mystery and magic.
The opening production of its 88th season couldn’t be any more audacious for Ross Valley Players. The company has knocked one solidly out of the park with its revival of the classic musical “Cabaret,” now amazingly 51 years old. Many people know the music — the 1972 movie version was enormously popular, as was the soundtrack album. For that reason it’s sometimes remembered as a lightweight romp through the decadent underworld of late 1920s Berlin.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
