Seattle Public Theater’s “Vanishing Point” takes on the disappearances of Amelia Earhart, Agatha Christie and Aimee Semple McPherson — in musical form. Apart from being legends in their own time (and ours), what did aviator Amelia Earhart, master of crime fiction Agatha Christie and flamboyant evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson share in common? All were accomplished, industrious and international celebrities. And all, while in their 30s, went missing.
Roosevelt High School graduate Brittain Ashford is one of four performers in “Ghost Quartet,” a spooky, neo-folkie chamber musical (about “love, death and whiskey”) playing at Erickson Theatre Off Broadway Jan. 19-28. Brittain Ashford isn’t quite sure how she wound up singing ghost songs. Or how she spent so long in Tolstoy’s Russia.
After many years in Seattle, Teatro ZinZanni recently pitched its colorful spiegeltent in Redmond’s Marymoor Park. The engagement there continues through April, with its future home yet to be announced. Before you dig into the appetizer of roasted pumpkin and winter squash with fresh ricotta cheese, or sip your first cocktail, jugglers and clowns drift by your table, pausing now and then to engage in a little comic repartee with diners.
"We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives & property rights, are considered more important than people...racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." https://t.co/eeKkwrBtBS
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".
