The appointment of Michelle Terry as artistic director of Shakespeare’s Globe is a smart move by a theatre board that rightly came in for ridicule for making current artistic director Emma Rice’s position artistically untenable. Rice’s departure in April 2018 will bring an end to the sorry saga. She takes up the reigns of a new company Wise Children and the immediate support from Arts Council England demonstrates its faith in her.
There has been some furore over an advert placed – then hastily removed by Arts Council England – on its jobs website by the Tea House Theatre in London seeking an admin worker paying £15,000 to £20,000. Beginning with the chatty greeting, “Dear Millenials” [sic], it went on to decry the office skills and commitment of previous applicants, declaring that it was looking for someone who would graft and who understood “the bottom line” of running a small theatre.
The Summer of Love season heats up at the Globe with the arrival of Matthew Dunster’s take on the “merry war” between Shakespeare’s most delightful lovers, Beatrice and Benedick. The play has been relocated from 16th-century Messina to Mexico in the midst of revolution in 1914. Here, men and women are ready for love – and war. Ammunition is a fashion accessory slung across shoulders. Women may be bound by ancient codes of honour – but they turn out to be crack shots, able to rival any man.
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".
