It’s close to a century ago that the music of the Jazz Age was the soundtrack for America, but almost everyone still knows and loves that musical era. Florida Studio Theatre in Sarasota is celebrating the popular music from the decade of flappers and speakeasies with a cabaret show titled “ROAR! The Music of the 1920s and Beyond.” It’s the last official show of the season for FST and it opens Tuesday in the John C. Court Cabaret.
The play’s title, “Pilgrims,” may make you think of the Mayflower and Plymouth Rock. Its set, a sort of sterile-looking futuristic bedroom, and its setting, aboard an interplanetary craft, may make you think of “2001: A Space Odyssey.” But Claire Kiechel’s drama, which is the current production at Sarasota’s Urbanite Theatre, is neither historical nor fantastic.
It’s kind of one of those “life imitating art” things. “The Producers” revolves around a musical that seems destined to close in the midst of its premiere performance, but then becomes a huge hit. The new Manatee Players staging of Mel Brooks’ 2001 musical (based on his 1967 non-musical film) faced potential disaster on opening night. Craig Weiskerger, one of the two title characters, fell and injured himself during a dance number about an hour into the show. That first show was canceled.
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".
