You'd be hard pressed to find another album that boasts songwriting contributions from both an Academy Award winner and an author with a Man Booker Prize on his mantle. But Martha Wainwright's Goodnight City can make that singular claim. While celebrated as a songwriter for three much-admired solo albums, Wainwright decided to work with other writers for her new record, thumbing through her impressive address book for some like-minded collaborators.
While planning the Stratford Festival’s 2018 playbill, artistic director Antoni Cimolino was faced with an unprecedented challenge. With the Tom Patterson Theatre slated for reconstruction over the next year, Cimolino had to find a way to preserve the artistic opportunities afforded by that venue without actually having that venue. There was some frustration — plays that seemed “too big” for the intimate Studio Theatre but not familiar enough to fill the Avon.
Mixing whimsy with a poignant message about endemic corruption, the Stratford Festival’s production of The Madwoman of Chaillot doesn’t flinch from its warning. Director Donna Feore does a superb job of balancing the play’s surreal elements with that underlying caution, giving her actors room to bring the satire to colourful, breathing life. An indictment of cruelty and greed, The Madwoman of Chaillot envisions a Paris in revolt.
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".
