It has been eight months since we set foot in the labor and delivery unit of this hospital . We lost our baby girl in room 13 last May, following a nightmarish few months consumed by trips to the emergency room, bleeding with unknown causes and bou...
After reading Steve Johnson's column in the Chicago Tribute titled " New TV terminology for the big-screeners and the stealth-bombers out there," I couldn't help but apply this methodology to live theater-going habits. Having spent much of my life dedicated to musicals, plays, and every other genre of theatrical art filling Broadway houses, a few lovingly self-deprecating labels came to mind.
Glancing at the shows nominated for Best Musical for this year's Tony Awards, it is easy to mistake the list as being a Hollywood box office report. All four shows -- Bring It On: The Musical; A Christmas Story, The Musical; Kinky Boots; and Matilda The Musical -- are derivatives of feature films, albeit the latter is based on the book rather than the '90s film adaptation.
There is a moment in Broadway's "I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers," as the one-time Hollywood agent extraordinaire is perched on her upholstered throne in Beverly Hills, that you half expect to see Erich von Stroheim cross the stage with a young William Holden in tow.
As the official Twitter account for The Performers has strong social media activity and has built up a small but avid fan base, I thought it interesting to take a look at the Twitter timeline starting on opening night and ending with the news of closing hitting the internet.
Sofa Snark: Alicia Silverstone joins Henry Winkler and Cheyenne Jackson in Broadway's The Performers, a play about the porn industry. It's a gang bang of a good time. Holiday cheer returns to the Great White Way as Elf returns in musical form while A Christmas Story makes its way from the silver screen to the stage at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
Get into a verbal fight on Facebook, and I still have to see you in our elevator the next morning. I'm all for embracing awkward moments, but not when that initial verbal brawl is seen, and judged, by my republican-minded in-laws.
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".
