HOFOPRO: The Howard Otway and Florence Otway Opportunity Project


The Howard Otway and Florence Otway Opportunity Project was founded in 2015 to honor the contributions Howard and Florence made to both their local New York City community and the theater world at large.

With costs of producing entertainment in New York City rising, HOFOPRO partners with theatrical producers, film makers, and performers of all sorts that are ready to make the leap to larger audiences and more professional production values. HOFOPRO supports many neighborhood initiatives to preserve and promote the performing arts.
