The weekly feature of what’s happening on Washington stages. Wall to wall tap dancing drives the light-footed “Crazy for You,” the Gershwin-tuned comedy being revived at Signature Theatre. Revelation of the week: comedian Felonius Munk’s funny-sober memoir “Nothing to Lose (But Our Chains).”It’s the last week for “Mean Girls,” virtually a sellout in its pre-Broadway stint at the National Theatre.

Americans say the darndest things. That’s the quick takeaway from Dan Hoyle’s earnest, kaleidoscopic 70-minute solo “The Real Americans” at Mosaic Theater Company, in which the wiry Hoyle plays people he met on the road over the past several years of political tumult. “I didn’t know if he could weather the storm,” one man says of why he didn’t vote for Bernie Sanders.
Really good performers in Washington get an intense workout, appearing in plays by Annie Baker, William Shakespeare and August Wilson, in musicals by Stephen Sondheim and other great composers. So if you’re a regular theatergoer in Washington, you surely have seen some of the these works — as well as some of the faces on these pages, representing some of the best of an emerging cadre of younger regional talent.
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".
