The Milton Katselas Krib Goes Up for Sale - 2009-01-09
For those who don't already know, Mister Katselas founded the Beverly Hills Playhouse acting school in 1978 where he coached such Hollywood hotshots as George Clooney, Michelle Pfeiffer, Gene Hackman, Doris Roberts, Kate Hudson, Tyne Daly, Patrick Swayze, that poor ladee from Knott's Landing whose face was ravaged by bad plastic surgery and many other notable names.
Before he started instructing film and television actors how to emote in a believable way and cry on cue, Mister Katselas worked as a film and theater director who helmed the original off-Broadway production of Edward Albee's The Zoo Story and the Tony nominated Broadway play Butterflies Are Free as well as the film version that starred Eddie Albert, the fa-boo Goldie Hawn, and Eileen Heckart, who earned an Oscar for her role.
Mister Katselas was also a long time Scientologist who some thought pressured his students to join the church and who reportedly achieved the very high level of "Operating Thetan," which according to Scientology doctrine, means Mister Katselas was capable of "knowing and willing cause over life, thought, matter, energy, space and time," whatever that means. But listen puppies, we're really not here to debate the merits of Scientology or any other religion–for what it's worth Your Mama thinks they're all wacky–so let's get back to the real estate.
