In Tiger Style!, Albert and Jennifer "substituted professional growth for personal growth." Jennifer Chen sees a therapist for the first time.

Mike Lew's Tiger Style! at La Jolla Playhouse shows the effects of super-strict parenting on two Chinese-Americans.

The men are scarcely aware of how the tables have turned in Love's Labor's Lost. One of the year's better productions must close this Sunday. Even with the play's disturbing, though fully justified, un-comic ending, the Old Globe's Love's Labor's Lost is a keeper.
Shana Wride, J. Michael Flynn, Cristina Soria, and Chris Petschler in The Cocktail Hour A dying tradition. Like the old New England dining rooms, which A. R. Gurney, Jr., also wrote about, the cocktail hour was a special time for East Coast Brahmins at day's end.

" She recalls passing her ticket out the window to a friend to squeeze two rides for the price of one, joining others in rocking the vehicle back and forth until the motorman became angry, and using the trolley to ride to San Diego High in the morning or to music lessons in the afternoon.
You could subtitle Shakespeare's Love's Labor's Lost the "Taming of the Adolescents." The Old Globe's got a charmer on its outdoor stage.

Manny Fernandes and Linda Libby One of the year's best shows must end its run this Sunday. Cygnet's Gypsy is a "must see." And if you haven't yet, well... "Sing out, Louise!" begins one of the most famous entrances in show business and one of the greatest musicals of all time.
A danger lurking at the shore could pose issues for beachgoers ahead of the Labor Day holiday weekend, and lifeguards are warning swimmers to be aware of rip currents.

Doug (Anthony Methvin) and Bud (Tom Zohar) With their new musical, Doug and Bud can't see the forest or the trees.

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
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".
