Sometimes students complain about friends who disparage their Meisner training by saying things like "Sounds like a cult!"  When actors make a commitment to training, sometimes it means giving up Friday nights out with friends in favor of rehearsing or prepping for that Saturday class.  Sometimes significant personal growth shows on the actor's face, as he talks enthusiastically about his new experiences.  And those experiences can threaten other people -- especially other actors.  So don't concern yourself when someone refers to Meisner as a cult.  It's not.  But it does demand a singular focus on becoming a great actor.
