Not bad for a 101 year old. As Le Petit Theatre du Vieux Carre begins its post-centenary season, the grande dame of local stages proves to have quite a kick in her step with a lively and energetic production of "Once on This Island." With its calypso-Caribbean beats and a cast of mostly African-American performers, the production also showcases how the venerable theater is continuing toward new directions by expanding its repertoire to represent the wider range of the community it serves.
Audiences arriving at the season-opening production of "Guys and Dolls" at the Rivertown Theaters for the Performing Arts this month are hardly taking much of a gamble. After all, the theater has rigged the dice. In addition to its energetic cast, crisp direction, knockout vocals and breathless dance numbers, Rivertown has chosen what proves to remain one of the most charming and beloved shows of the musical canon.
Since its premiere in 1959, "Gypsy" has been recognized as the single greatest example of American musical theater. There were groundbreaking examples in the past, and today audiences still encounter innovations and further developments. But as an example of sheer perfection - with a rousing score, bitingly clever lyrics and a book of rich depth - "Gypsy" holds its place at the top of the marquee.
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
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".
