What do you call a theater full of pretty-talented people looking pretty? The annual Ivey Awards, which recognizes the people who create the Twin Cities theater scene. Even if your theater-going is limited to a couple of Fringe Festival shows and “A Christmas Carol” five years ago at the Guthrie, the people-watching at the Iveys is worth the price of admission. There’s a red carpet for glam entrances. And, you get to see excerpts of productions you might have missed last year on Twin Cities stages.
The unveiling of the title for Brave New Workshop’s holiday show is as much a part of the season as the Santaland display on the 8th floor auditorium at the downtown Minneapolis Dayton’s/Marshall Field’s/ Macy’s. Oh, wait. Make that the arrival of Santa at Mall of America. Yeah. That tradition.
Actor Beau Bridges and his daughter Emily, who is on the board of Illusion Theater in Minneapolis, perform together at Illusion on Monday night. The two will read from a two-person play they have adapted, “Acting: The First Six Lessons.” It’s based on a book of the same name that Beau’s father, actor Lloyd Bridges, gave each of his children. The 7:30 p.m. performance and post-show discussion is free, but reservations are required by calling 612-339-4944 #200.
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".
