The off-Broadway play, Jocelyn Bioh’s School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play, opens on a scene we’ve witnessed often in movies and TV and real-life—girls in a high school cafeteria whoop it up while fawning over the mean girl who always gets her way. In this case, queen bee Paulina (played by the talented Maameyaa Boafo) controls the group and expects that she is going to be selected for the Miss Ghana pageant.
Michael McKeever’s play ‘Daniel’s Husband’ begins as a portrait of a perfect relationship. But a sudden twist leads to a much darker story. The first scene of Daniel’s Husband is so delightfully charming and funny that you settle into your seat at New York’s Cherry Lane Theatre, ready to spend a happy evening with an appealing gay couple and two of their friends. Don’t get too comfortable. By the last scene you may be sniffling instead of smiling.
STANDING UP The banner hung over the stage like one of those rag-tag tricolore flags waved by the defiant masses on the barricades in . It looked tanned, weathered, a standard from another time. But the words scrawled upon it are a battle-cry from the year 2017: "She was warned.
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".
