Jennifer Lawrence had a surprisingly powerful response when she first read Darren Aronofsky's screenplay for Mother! "When I got to the end, I threw the script across the floor," she says. "I was so horrified. I told him that he had severe mental problems." Even so, the star of Silver Linings Playbook, Passengers and the Hunger Games series threw herself into what is bound to be one of the year's most polarising movies. "It was the most I've ever put myself through emotionally," she says.
Judy Davis has been summoned. Along with Kate Mulvany, Virginia Gay, Colin Friels, Jimi Bani, Genevieve Lemon and a stage full of "mad clowns". There is a new play based on a classic Peter Carey novel, another new one by Alana Valentine and a Sydney season for a hit Chinese-Australian comedy by Michelle Law. As well as a revival from an 18-year-old English writer, there are classics by Strindberg and Ibsen plus a dash of Doris Day.
Craig Pearce calls it Revenge of the Colonials. The co-writer of Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby – director Baz Luhrmann's longtime collaborator – is back home after creating a livewire TV series about the young William Shakespeare in the United Kingdom. He struck out on his own to create the 10-episode drama Will, a punk rock take on the young playwright's early years. "He's the most famous person in the world that no one knows anything about," Pearce says.
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".
