The movie "La La Land" was a hit by pretty much every measure — it grossed more than $150 million at the domestic box office, took home six Oscars (not "Best Picture," but still), and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti even declared a "La La Land" Day. But possibly the most important marker of success? "La La Land" now has its own drag parody show. It’s a play called “So Long Boulder City,” presented by Celebration Theatre at The Lex in Hollywood.
“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is playwright Simon Stephens' adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by Mark Haddon. Adam Langdon stars as 15-year-old Christopher Boone in the Tony Award-winning play's first U.S. tour, currently at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. Boone is incredibly intelligent. But because of his difficulty interpreting and conveying emotion, he has a hard time navigating everyday life.
It's a pretty good time right now to be director/choreographer Kenny Ortega. With the success of "Hamilton" on Broadway, "La La Land" in film, and live musicals cropping up on multiple television networks, musical theater is definitely having a moment. "I think that perhaps television, and perhaps the movies, are discovering that there is an audience out there that you [just] have to find," Ortega says. "You have to awaken them."
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".
