Lord Lloyd Webber is celebrating his 70th birthday with at least two high-profile retrospectives. Somewhat confusingly, both are titled Unmasked. One is a fat autobiography, which has just hit the bookshops. The other is a set of CDs featuring a collection of his greatest hits. Even this comes in more than one version. The deluxe edition reviewed here comprises no fewer than four CDs and 81 tracks, although there is a more select two-CD version.
Amy Ng is clearly a highly intelligent and thoughtful writer who cares deeply about diversity issues. Acceptance is set in an Ivy League American university and takes on themes that will be familiar to fans of David Mamet from plays such as Oleanna and Race. Jennifer Leong plays central character Angela Chan, a 17-year-old violin prodigy from Hong Kong with strong credentials to win a music scholarship at Elliott.
Anyone who has had the good fortune to enjoy Sir Anthony Sher’s previous chronicles of scaling the Shakespearean heights will be racing to the bookshops to pick up this diary of his King Lear experience. At a purely theatrical level, it is a fascinating take on an exciting production directed by the man who became the author’s husband partway through the year, the RSC’s Artistic Director Greg Doran.
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".
