          A Walk in the Woods by Lee Blessing
Plaza Playhouse Theater, 4916 Carpinteria Avenue, Carpinteria
> DETAILS   
> HIDE   
A Walk in the Woods comes to the Plaza Playhouse Theater Lee Blessing's Broadway play about two diplomats during the ( first ) Cold War ostensibly trying to reduce nuclear arms proliferation is both dramatic and funny, and just the type of historical play that DIJO Productions has built a reputation on presenting. A seasoned Russian negotiator (Edward Giron) has a new American counterpart (William Waxman), an exceptionally skilled and highly regarded theorist without international experience. Their walks in the woods are to result in a nuclear treaty between their two countries. Timely and intriguing with many touches of humor, Lee Blessing's A Walk in the Woods is thought provoking as well as emotionally touching. Based on the relationship of two actual Cold War negotiators, the play examines the tension that Russia and the US experience at this moment through a distant lens. Directed by Jerry Oshinsky, DIJO Productions founder, A Walk in the Woods pairs Giron and Waxman once again. They've played opposite each other previously as Drummond and Brady in Inherit the Wind and Felix and Oscar in the Odd Couple. A Walk in the Woods will run February 24th to March 5th, 2017 at the Plaza Playhouse Theater, 4916 Carpinteria Avenue in Carpinteria. Performances are Fridays at 8, Saturdays at 8, and Sundays at 3. There is a special invited preview on February 23rd at 8. General admission is $17 and Students and Seniors are $13. Group discounts available. For reservations and information call 805 684 6380 or go to www.plazatheatercarpinteria .com    ($13 - $17)

Impact Hub, 1117 State St, Santa Barbara
> DETAILS

Examine a set of 30+ hard-won observations and frameworks that can help your business succeed. As an early-stage entrepreneur, your time is money, and what you do (or don’t do) each day directly impacts the success of your business. In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to a set of tools to help organize your day-to-day workload. You’ll then prioritize which strategies look most promising based on your current situation, and create a game plan to put it all into action. Better yet, you’ll hear from others as they sort it all out alongside you. Tom Bird has been an entrepreneur and investor in early stage impact firms since 1988. His professional highlights include serving in many roles: mentor and entrepreneur-in-residence at the Harvard Innovation Lab; founder and CEO of the Silicon Valley information management firm FARM Inc.; trustee of the American University in Bulgaria; director of B Lab; managing director of Sonen Capital; partner with Impact Investment Partners; and board chair of the Global Giving Foundation. Tom currently serves on the boards of On Frontiers (as chairman), Sonen Capital, Unleesh, and One Summit, and is also on two investment committees for the Patient Capital Collaborative. He holds a B.A. in Economics from Dartmouth College, an M.B.A from Stanford University, and a Master of Theological Studies degree with an emphasis on ethics from Harvard University. 3:30 - 5:00 PM Community Event: Free Sign Up Required; Limited Seating Members: Sign ups available now to February 28 General Admission: Sign ups available February 21 - 28
