Many shows fail to stand the test of time but "Kiss Me Kate," the 1948 musical comedy gem, is one of the rare ones that does.The clever backstage story features a play-within-a-play that ingeniously blends the heady world of Shakespeare with classic American musical comedy. A small theatrical touring company is mounting a musical version of the bard's "The Taming of the Shrew" bound for Broadway.

Writing a nature column on deadline means you know you’ll sometimes sound foolish, no matter what the week ahead brings. As I write, predictions of fast falling snow are spreading through the neighborhood. We might get a foot of snow, half a foot or maybe the storm will change course and we’ll get rain instead. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that there will be wind and lots of it.
The snow storm may have spared Liam’s, but the Orleans selectmen won’t.They voted 4-1 on Monday (Dave Currier dissenting) to terminate the lease to John Ohman and tear the building down as soon as possible in order to construct an artificial sand dune, planted with beach grass, to help protect the parking lot – for another summer at least.
EASTHAM – A planned walkout at Nauset to protest recent school gun violence and the inability of leaders to address the issue took a back seat to Mother Nature on Wednesday, as school closure forced the postponement of the event. Other protests continued despite the weather conditions.
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".
