Twelve years ago, Terry Teachout walked into a Baltimore restaurant and fell in love. At 49, he’d given up on love, as had Hilary, the woman he met that night and married two years later. “We had accepted that we would spend the rest of our lives alone and suddenly, we were together,” said Teachout, whose play Billy and Me is premiering at Palm Beach Dramaworks in West Palm Beach. But it wasn’t all unshadowed bliss.
Billy and Me has good bones. But it owes its entertainment value in large measure to the powerful performances of Nicholas Richberg as Tennessee Williams and Tom Wahl as William Inge, as well as William Hayes’ sensitive direction. The play, which is drama critic Terry Teachout’s second, is premiering at Palm Beach Dramaworks in West Palm Beach. ‘Billy and Me’ speculates on complex friendship between playwrightsThe idea of imagining what went on inside the playwrights’ long friendship is a good one.
Terry Teachout was in his 50s and well-established as an arts journalist when his first play, Satchmo at the Waldorf , astonished him by becoming a runaway success. “I had no serious expectation that it would go anywhere,” he said. The one-man show about jazz virtuoso Louis Armstrong has had 15 productions since it premiered in September 2011, including Teachout’s directorial debut in May 2016 at Palm Beach Dramaworks in West Palm Beach.
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".
