After being washed out of the Wortham Theater Center by Hurricane Harvey, Houston Grand Opera has found an "unconventional" home for its first three productions. Officials announced on Monday that an exhibit hall at the George R. Brown Convention Center will be converted into a temporary 1,700-seat space, dubbed "HGO Resilence Theater," for the season opener, Verdi's La traviata. The production will run on the same dates from October 20-November 11 as originally planned, albeit in a smaller space.
Tadashi Shoji is known for outfitting the Hollywood crowd in glam gowns for big events — Hidden Figures star Octavia Spencer is favorite — so it wasn't too surprising that the front row at his New York Fashion Week runway show included a host of television starlets as well as Olympic gymnastics and Dancing With the Stars champion Laurie Hernandez. For spring/summer 2018, his collection is much less about the red carpet and much more about casual dressing.
In the heart of the Houston Theater District, the whirl of generators and pumpers are unending. Tubes coming out of every iconic theater building, trying to dry out a soggy mess. While officials have known the Wortham Theater Center suffered the most serious damage, the word didn't come until now that it will need repairs so extensive, it will not open until May 2018. That's the optimistic prediction. "It's heart breaking to see it under siege," says Houston Ballet executive director Jim Nelson.
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".
