The Rep started its 2017-18 season off on a high note. An intentionally cringe-inducing, frequently funny and occasionally tear-jerking high note. Souvenir, which opened in the theater’s intimate Stackner Cabaret space on September 8 and plays through November 5, is a musical about a real-life Manhattan socialite who aspired to be an opera singer. Florence Foster Jenkins, 1868-1944, sang to packed houses in New York City for years, even selling out Carnegie Hall.
Now celebrating its ninth anniversary, the Milwaukee Film festival seems to be getting bigger and better every year. Last year, it introduced Cine Sin Fronteras as a new program category. And this year, the festival expands on its offerings. Cine Sin Fronteras shines a spotlight on work of the Latin diaspora – representing Latinx, Chicanx, Latin American, indigenous and Afro-Latinx communities. The 2017 program includes seven feature films and a series of shorts titled Menos es Mas.
On Friday, September 15, Hari Kondabolu brings his comedy, and astute social commentary, to Milwaukee for not one but two shows at the Underground Collaborative. I started when I was 17, and I’m 34 now, so I’ve been performing half my life. I went to Bowdoin, in Maine, for college and got more into comedy while I was there. Then I moved to Seattle after graduating and started performing more seriously while I was there, around 2005. I was a comedian before I was politically active.
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".
