There is no doubt that David Hoyle is a passionate and sometimes angry performer. He is prepared to rant and rave with an energy that is almost spiritual, can be sexual and is at turns provocative, profound and unashamedly decadent. Diamond is his comment on society and a personal biography which starts with him as a young child in Blackpool. These informative years were shaped by his love of glamorous things mixed with a stern religious upbringing where he was told: “God is watching you”.
Good theatre comes together because of two key ingredients: the words and the actor uttering those words. With Twinkle, Little Star directed and written by Phillip Meeks and starring the incomparable Jason Sutton, these are in abundance. Sutton is a born trouper and Meeks a skilled writer of pathos, mood and captivating dialogue that tugs at the heartstrings and with Sutton performing in such a scintillating manner this play will move you to tears of pleasure.
Homage, tribute, interpretation but not impersonation, Beth Burrows’ one woman show Sirens of the Silver Screen, directed by Mark Giesser, is an accomplished and well executed piece of musical theatre which has a charm and delicate sophistication to it that warrants a firm thumbs up.
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".
