On a cool evening in early June, as auditions get under way for the play “Falling,” the conversation onstage is as subdued as the lighting in the intimate “black box” theater. But as the actors playing a young girl and her grandmother work through a scene, the quiet dialogue between them gives glimpses of a family in turmoil. In “Falling,” the Deanna Jent play that San Diego’s InnerMission Productions will stage this autumn, that family includes a son named Josh, who has autism.
Looking for a witch to root for? Go get a ticket to “Wicked.”At least, that might be the usual advice for a musical-theater-related witch fix. But you can throw that idea out the porthole when it comes to Moonlight Stage Productions’ splashy new production of “The Little Mermaid,” which features a supreme meanie who manages to soak up a small ocean’s worth of audience affection. (Or frighted and delighted admiration, anyway.)
That may not be quite the vibe of “Game of Thrones: The Musical,” a new take on the hit HBO series. The live show is a spoof, after all. But you can expect plenty of musical numbers to go with your royal bloodlust as the fittingly large-cast production — previously staged in Hollywood — hits town just in time for San Diego Comic-Con International. Catch the show at the Tenth Avenue Arts Center’s theater, just across downtown from the main Con Zone.
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".
