Brazilian artists, a Chilean playwright and an Italian architect make the fall arts season in the Valley something of a world tour. Then there’s a horror-movie opera and a Cirque du Soleil-style “Nutcracker.” Here are our Top 10 picks to help you plan your calendar through the holidays. It’s the next best thing to flying to Brazil to visit the Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo.
“Hamilton” is the hottest touring show out of Broadway since “The Phantom of the Opera” nearly three decades ago. How hot? In May, for the first time ever, Tempe’s ASU Gammage sold out season tickets to its Broadway series — in less than two hours — largely thanks to demand for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hip-hop musical about the Founding Fathers. But “Hamilton” isn’t the only hit coming in 2017-18.
And don’t forget the body parts. No theater company can get by without a severed head or two. These eclectic items are just a fraction of the 24 years’ worth of costumes, props and equipment that Southwest Shakespeare Company lost when its main storage building, owned by the city of Mesa, was destroyed by fire in June. “Something as silly as like the rubber chicken,” said Daniel Davisson, production manager for the state’s only classical theater troupe.
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".
