Even in 2016, Garry Marshall knew that what worked for his 1990 hit film “Pretty Woman” wouldn’t work in a musical. Times had changed, and Vivian and Edward — the characters played by Julia Roberts and Richard Gere — would have to change, too: No longer could a hooker with a heart of gold be saved by a man. Marshall began reshaping the story to make Vivian stronger and more independent, but died in July 2016, before finishing the musical’s script.
Bryan Cranston is winning raves as wild-eyed anchorman Howard Beale in the stage adaptation of “Network” at London’s National Theatre. The “Breaking Bad” star was a major box-office draw in Broadway’s 2014 “All the Way,” so it’s no surprise that plans are afoot to bring “Network” to New York. But Cranston may need a little coaxing: His performance is so intense, I hear he’s reluctant to commit to the grind of eight shows a week.
Sorry, Go-Go’s: My lips are not sealed: “Head Over Heels,” a new musical featuring songs by the ’80s girl band, will open this summer at the Hudson Theatre. Gwyneth Paltrow is producing the $15 million musical with her ex-boyfriend Donovan Leitch. Helping them finance the show will be Jujamcyn Theaters president Jordan Roth. Roth wanted “Head Over Heels” for his Walter Kerr Theatre, but he’s got this squatter there called Bruce Springsteen, who refuses to leave.
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".
