Nica Burns is trying to reduce noisy packaging in Nimax TheatresIt’s difficult to complain if someone is munching on popcorn during the quiet bits of a play like The Glass Menagerie when the theatre itself sells the stuff in big plastic tubs.

The show, an earlier version of which premiered in Oxford last year, cuts a lot deeper than that might suggest.

One of the defining joys of Hamilton, which has just begun previews in London, is to tell its story of the founding fathers of America with a fully diverse cast: this is a story that belongs to everyone.
@Krisp06@AlmeidaTheatre Yes, the former media director of a prominent West End ad agency once told me she was going to the National as she’d never been. I asked what show she was seeing and she replied, “Oh no, we’re going to the restaurant!”
Sometimes just reading the reviews is enough. I can’t see everything — there aren’t enough nights in the week — but today’s reviews for THE TWILIGHT ZONE at @AlmeidaTheatre have persuaded me to stay away. (Even the good reviews; hold on, ESPECIALLY the good ones!) https://t.co/0NvcR4L3gL
Planned London run for Max Stafford-Clark’s final @out_of_joint show RITA SUE AND BOB TOO at @royalcourt in January is cancelled. “The show has successfully toured to ten venues this Autumn and we remain incredibly proud that the shared collaboration made the tour possible.”
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".
