“Producing and Production" LAB 2000 - Director's Lab West 2000 was held from Monday, April 17th through Sunday, April 22nd, 10am-8pm hosted by the Greenway Arts Alliance at the new Greenway Court Theatre. Randy Newman was a featured artist for the week and discussed the musical in process "The Education of Randy Newman". There was also a "Theater Critics Panel" made up of representatives from local publications and national journals. Important topics such as "Director as Dramaturg" and "Director as Producer" were also discussed in panel workshops with lengthy question and answer sessions which afforded participants the opportunity to engage in dialogs with seasoned professionals. Martin Benson, the Artistic Director of South Coast Repertory lead a session about  "Starting A Theater". Attendees were also able to observe other director's styles in consecutive scenes from a play. Each chosen director used the same sets of actors, yet created a totally different experience through a varied use of approach. It was the first time the West Coast Lab was attempted and it was hailed as a great success! Guests from 2000 included: Luis Alfaro, Martin Benson, Ernest Dillihay, Robert Egan, Bob Glaudini, Lars Hansen, Don Hill, Jon Lawrence Rivera, Randy Newman, and Carmen Zapata.
