Beverly Hill Playhouse Acting Classes

Michelle Pfeiffer On The Beverly Hills Playhouse Acting School

imdb-squareJames Lipton: We’re interested in our guests’ training. When you begin studying and with whom did you study?

Michelle Pfeiffer: I started studying with one of Milton Katselas’ associates in the beginning and then I worked with Milton for many years. What I loved about working with Milton was he kind of prepared actors so that you’re a little director-proof in a way because you learn to be your own director and he talked a lot about what, “Okay, what would you do in this situation?” So, you’d say, “Well, I would, you know, I would get up,” and he’d say, “Okay. Now, what would you really do in this situation?” and that was always the way that he would get you to second guess your first kind of superficial choice.


BHP Testimonials

There are times in ones life when the right people are discovered at the right time. I'm so fortunate to have been able to recognize that the first time I fearfully stepped through the doors of the Beverly Hills Play House. The timing was right. Because of Milton I was able to tap into a whole new world of which I'm still discovering. My deep appreciation to the art of filmmaking, I owe to him.
