Comedy, violence and sex collide in the play “Daytona” by British actor and playwright Oliver Cotton. The work, originally produced in England, is now being presented by Rogue Machine at The MET Theatre in Hollywood. The comedy comes early as Joe (George Wyner) and Elli (Sharron Shayne), a couple in their 70s, bicker while practicing in their Brooklyn apartment for a senior dance competition.
Architect Alfred Willer, who was a member of one of only 12 families with Jewish roots that survived the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, is the subject of a biographical documentary crafted by his daughter, Marina Willer. The film’s title, “Red Trees,” is inspired by the fact that, at age 10, Alfred Willer was drawing trees and made the leaves red, leading him to discover that he was colorblind.
A nice Jewish lawyer contends with the spirits of his late mother and sister, who awaken his lifelong feelings of guilt, in the farcical play “The Rainbow Bridge,” now running at the Ruskin Group Theatre in Santa Monica. “When you come from a family with many issues, and you go on to lead kind of a normal life, and you know a lot of people go through a lot of suffering, it’s kind of hard to move on,” said the playwright, Ron Nelson.
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".
