Jack Black, Downton Abbey, and The Phantom of the Opera don’t necessarily go together, but that changes with the arrival of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical passion project on Broadway. School of Rock—The Musical, a stage adaptation based on the hit 2003 film starring Black as a wannabe rocker who forms a band at a prestigious prep school, will make its world premiere in New York at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre. Previews begin Nov. 2, 2015 in anticipation of a Dec. 6 opening.
The Great American Novel heads to the Great White Way as producers have announced the cast for Aaron Sorkin’s new play based on Harper Lee’s seminal classic To Kill a Mockingbird, opening on Broadway this fall. Jeff Daniels, the two-time Tony-nominated actor who was last seen on Broadway in 2016’s intimate Blackbird, will star as Atticus Finch, the heroic attorney and father figure in Lee’s groundbreaking novel (a role famously immortalized onscreen in 1962 by Gregory Peck).
Remember Coco? Disney and Pixar’s November box-office surprise, both in the United States and Mexico (where it’s the biggest release in Mexican movie history), is headed for a musical reprise, now that it’s on the move from the multiplex to home release.
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".
