We've all seen love stories played out on stage before, but not quite so philosophical as this one. Anna Ziegler, an American playwright who was groomed at NYU and Yale, has recently become the talk of the theater world with productions of her smart and bittersweet works cropping up in major cities the world over. This month Albuquerque gets treated to one of her works, A Delicate Ship, produced by Aux Dog Theatre (3011 Monte Vista Blvd. NE) in Nob Hill.
The angels that populate Luis Alberto Urrea's newest novel, The House of Broken Angels, are not descended from on-high, they are in fact very much of this Earth, though one is soon to depart. This is the story of Miguel Angel De la Cruz—Big Angel—the patriarch of a sprawling family, as he experiences the final days of his life. Big Angel, earning his “Big” status as the older half-brother of “Little Angel,” is slowly succumbing to cancer and tethered to his wheelchair.
“For me, as the world has changed, the mission of the festival has changed,” Tricklock Company Artistic Director Juli Hendren said of the company's 18th annual Revolutions International Theatre Festival, a weeks-long event featuring theater from all over the globe brought right here to Albuquerque. “It has always been about cultural exchange,” she continued, “but now it is truly a mission of empathy, compassion, understanding and connection.
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".
