All seemed to agree that, as a society, we’ve come a long way in the battle but there is still much work to be done. The keynote address was offered jointly by Judy and Dennis Shepard, founders of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, established to carry on the legacy of their son, Matthew, who was brutally attacked in a field outside of Laramie, Wyo. on Oct. 7, 1998 because he was gay. Five days after the attack, Matthew Shepard died of his injuries at the age of 21.
Frost, it turns out, was once a highly regarded detective who, as the play begins, is long since washed up, having botched an investigation into the kidnapping and possible homicide of an infant some 12 years earlier. Armed with new evidence, he has returned in a last-ditch effort to solve the crime and to rescue his reputation, with his retirement looming right around the corner. In this remote, tightly knit village, he faces a conspiracy of silence and, in some cases, downright hostility.
The show, which has, admittedly, been overexposed locally in recent times, nonetheless remains a delight in its own sick kind of way. A highlight, as always, is the score, featuring stick-in-your-head rock/show tune melodies by Alan Menken and often hilarious lyrics by Howard Ashman, who also wrote the book, which is, in turn, humorous, touching and horrifying.
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".
