At long last, Acting Class brings to every reader Milton Katselas' renowned approach to both the craft and career of acting. Katselas is the founder of the Beverly Hills Playhouse acting school in Los Angeles, and for decades has been one of America's foremost directors/teachers.

    George Clooney, Michelle Pfeiffer, Alec Baldwin, James Cromwell, Doris Roberts, Jorge Garcia, Tom Selleck, Anne Archer, Giovanni Ribisi, Michael Peña and Patrick Swayze are just some of the celebrated actors that have benefited from Milton’s teaching.

Previously available only to his students at the BHP, Katselas' Acting Class takes the reader inside the legendary classes that he has taught for over forty years. You will feel as if you have taken a seat in the theatre, as much of its material is adapted directly from actual critiques of professional actors in the classes.

Acting Class covers in detail the three areas central to the Katselas approach: Acting, Attitude and Administration. The uniqueness and universality of Katselas' teaching comes from this three-pronged attack, which not only addresses the craft of acting, but also the proper attitude with which the actor should pursue his or her work, as well as an extensive section on the proper technique of career administration.

Down-to-earth, accessible, funny, and conversational, Acting Class is the culmination of 40 years of teaching that has helped thousands of actors achieve both the art and the careers of their dreams.
