They did not throw away their shot. Given the chance to create an entirely new version of "Hamilton" for Chicago, the show's creative team assembled an impressive array of performers who wring a great deal of comedy and a number of electric moments from the musical.
The title character in "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency" frequently discusses how one entity or event can parallel another, so it's fitting that Dirk and the new show starring him strongly resemble each other. If only that were a compliment.
You might say that a typical day for Christopher Jackson, who is a key part of both " Hamilton" and CBS' " Bull," is non-stop. The actor has a lot in common with the two men he plays, aside from an exceptional capacity for hard work.
You would have to search far and wide to find a drama more glum and dismal than " Chance." Hugh Laurie, who capably anchored "House" for so many years and who was delightfully duplicitous in AMC's recent miniseries " The Night Manager," cannot manage to lift this dull drama out of the array of ruts that it stubbornly wallows in.
TV is experiencing all kinds of fascinating growing pains: Half-hour shows can be tragic, hourlong shows can be comedies, and people from a wide range of classes, cultures, and backgrounds can be protagonists. This story first appeared in the October 11, 2016 issue of Variety.
The images are scratchy and grainy, but absolutely gripping: Somehow a prisoner in solitary confinement conducts a video chat with a reporter, describing appalling conditions in an Alabama correctional facility that has endured what looks like a state of chaos for months.
The modest drama " Eyewitness " fits comfortably into the rural-crime subgenre that has flourished in recent years. It's no surprise to discover that the new USA program is based on a Norwegian series: Given how masterfully a number of Scandinavian and U.K.
"I'm erasing myself from the narrative," Eliza Hamilton sings in "Hamilton." In that song, "Burn," the title character's wife torches his letters and denies future generations insights into the scandals that surrounded his career.
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
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".
