CALPURNIA by Audrey Dwyer (Nightwood Theatre/Sulong Theatre). At Buddies in Bad Times (12 Alexander). Runs to February 4. Pwyc-$35. 416-975-8555. See listing. Rating:Race politics, class differences and one of the most beloved novels of our time get savagely skewered in Calpurnia, Audrey Dwyer’s new sure-to-sell-out play that will get you laughing, thinking and (occasionally) shifting uncomfortably in your seat.
MY FUNNY VALENTINE by Dave Deveau (Zee Zee Theatre). At Buddies in Bad Times Cabaret (12 Alexander). Runs to January 21. Pwyc-$30. 416-975-8555. See listing. Rating:The idea of a solo show inspired by the 2008 murder of 15-year-old gay youth Lawrence King – who was shot in the head by the male student he asked to be his Valentine – is full of dramatic potential.
HAMLET by William Shakesepeare (Tarragon, 30 Bridgman). Runs to February 11. $20-$60. 416-531-1827. See listing. Rating:I hope a lot of students go see the Tarragon’s Hamlet. It’s not definitive – could any production be? – but it offers a refreshing, immediate take on the world’s most famous play that should appeal to those with few preconceptions about the work. And who knew that the Bard’s famous lines could withstand a steady, pulsing bass beat?
@atelierivaan@CanadianOpera Really, Abduction? Bet you’re excited about the new production then! I’m: Don G, Figaro, Walkure, Elektra, Don Carlos, Act 3 of Rosenkavalier, Rigoletto. But that’s today. Diff tomorrow.
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".
