Award-winning circus performer James Thierrée says he usually likes to find titles that sound good in French. La grenouille avait raison, which launches TOHU’s 14th season next Thursday, certainly delivers on that score. (Its English title is The Toad Knew – still bonkers, perhaps, though not quite as elegantly so.) But, he warns during a phone conversation with the Montreal Gazette, “don’t expect the title to be some kind of clue for the show.
With an adaptation of his early-1970s play Demain matin, Montréal m’attend opening next week, and the cast read-through of a new creation coming up at Théâtre Jean-Duceppe, even a writer of Michel Tremblay’s stature and accomplishments might be forgiven for feeling a little nervous. But perhaps weighing heavier on his mind was something taking place nearly 3,000 kilometres away.
Centaur Theatre hosts Playing With Fire: The Theo Fleury Story, starring Shaun Smyth as the hockey player who was considered too short for the NHL but went on to Stanley Cup and Olympic gold glory. Photo Umbrella Say the word “puck” to your average theatregoer, and chances are their thoughts will immediately go to a mischievous fairy in a Shakespeare play.
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".
