Although it sounds as if it could be a circus act, this is the name of an extraordinary British actress who has been impressing around New York's theatrical edges in recent seasons. As anyone knows who saw her Marc Antony in Phyllida Lloyd's smashing all-woman "Julius Caesar" in 2013, Jumbo can do daring Shakespeare. And as big-ticket Broadway theatergoers may remember, they met her briefly this season as one of Hugh Jackman's mysterious women in "The River." But that, seriously, was not about her.
A.R. Gurney, who chronicled the vanishing New England WASP establishment in more than 40 plays, including “The Dining Room” and “The Cocktail Hour,” died Tuesday at his home in Manhattan. He was 86. The playwright’s agent, Jonathan Lomma, who confirmed Gurney’s death, did not give a cause. “He was a fine writer and a lovely man.
Last year around this time, I asked director George C. Wolfe to comment on the remarkable racial and ethnic diversity of the past season. His answer — “Each season has its own magical arbitrariness” — deserves to hang on the wall of any fool straining to make eternal generalizations about Broadway on the basis of the shows that made it to Tony time. So here we are approaching Sunday’s 71st annual Tony Awards.
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".
