History, Mike Daisey tells us, “is always a process of brutal editing,” lifting up some stories and people while erasing others. That’s hardly a news flash, but it’s an uncomfortable truth to those who might not have given a second thought to the sanitized, selective version of U.S. history they were taught in school. Daisey seems intent on keeping that truth — and the painful details behind it — at the forefront as he launches his newest project in the Dowling Studio at the Guthrie Theater.
In days such as these, when 90-minute-no-intermission plays are becoming the norm for new scripts, it’s unfortunately common for playwrights to shorthand their stories or to try to pack way too much plot into far too little time. Paula Vogel does not suffer from this problem. The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright’s newest script, “Indecent,” stretches to a little over 100 minutes without an interval.
“The Pirates of Penzance” is a lark and a goof; a piffle of a social satire that aims to entertain. An imaginative and whimsical production at Park Square Theatre gives that silliness a twist that refreshes the work while honoring its roots. The production doesn’t jump immediately into the story of hapless buccaneers and the almost-thwarted love between a dim, duty bound young man and a pretty, proper young woman.
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".
