The leaders of technology companies wield a disquieting power to shape our future. Christopher Shinn’s ambitious new play examines the messianic tendencies of Silicon Valley plutocrats through Luke, a billionaire whose innovations have changed the landscape of artificial intelligence. He’s also — get this — an expert in rocket science. But lately he has been receiving messages from God, and he now believes it’s his duty to ‘go where there’s violence’.
Kevin R McNally, best known for playing superstitious Mr Gibbs in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, is a gruff and battle-scarred King Lear. Sporting a Captain Birdseye beard and dressed like an out-of-luck construction worker, he's not so much a despot shedding his regal authority as a squatter obliged to find a new patch. By the standards of recent shows at the Globe, Nancy Meckler’s production is restrained.
Rob Drummond’s one-man show began life as a response to his own inertia during 2014’s referendum on Scottish independence. In its bleary aftermath he met Eric, a fervently left-wing beekeeper convinced that his coastal community had become infested with fascists. His interest in Eric’s strange theories has yielded this exploration of democracy and tolerance. On arrival each member of the audience is handed a keypad — used over the next 90 minutes to vote on a succession of yes-or-no questions.
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".
