Fringe 2017 will go down in history for several reasons. It was the biggest ever Toronto Fringe, with 160 shows, which may have had something to do with its record-breaking sales of $519,707 (the first time it’s broken the $500K mark); it was the first Fringe at its new home at Scadding Court; the near-paperless ticketing system, which had a trial run at last winter’s Next Stage Festival, went very smoothly; and this was the final Fringe under executive director Kelly Straughan.
BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL by King & Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, and Douglas McGrath (Mirvish). At the Ed Mirvish Theatre (244 Victoria). Runs to September 3. $50-$149. 416-872-1212. mirvish.com. See listing. Rating:There are so many familiar songs in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical that the actors could merely sing a concert of them and most audiences would leave happy.
LETTERS TO ANNABELLE by Stephen Joffe (Panfish Productions). At MAY (876 Dundas West). July 13-14 at 7 pm, July 15-16 at 2 pm. See listing. Rating:Liam (Kyle Bailey), a Canadian soldier whose one night stand with a woman named Annabelle helped get him through the trenches of WWI, looks for her afterwards in Stephen Joffe’s well-intentioned, but flawed script. The site-specific venue, MAY, stands in for the Prohibition-era speakeasy where Liam first met Annabelle, who’s now nowhere to be found.
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".
