The chameleon-like Hershey Felder has made an astonishingly successful career of turning himself into highly acclaimed composers. Over the years he has become a reasonable facsimile of Irving Berlin, Chopin, George Gershwin, Beethoven, Leonard Bernstein and Franz Liszt.
A sugarplum of a stage setting in the Lohman Theatre at Foothill College belies the decidedly adult humor that spews forth from the devilish, boyish-looking Max Tachis who (mostly) beguiles his audience for 70 minutes in a monologue that contrasts David Sedaris’ wicked humor and the innocence of children at Christmastime. The 180-seat theater is the perfect size for a TheatreWorks Silicon Valley production such as this, which was created by essayist/writer Sedaris in 1992.
If you think the musical version of “Peter Pan” is only for kids, you’ve got another think coming. It’s for everyone who believes in magic — even a little bit — because the Palo Alto Players production which runs through Nov. 19 is truly magical for anyone between 3 and 93. More than a little of the credit for that goes to the mesmerizing Corrie Farbstein, who has exactly the right amount of swagger, athleticism and boyish perkiness to make anyone believe she’s Peter Pan.
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".
