Hall of Fame Inductees: Support

This area is currently under construction. Please find below the current list of inductees as well as the year in which they were inducted into the Hall of Fame by the members of the OFTA. Please note that the most recent additions have been listed like this. We are working on an area to give more details on our selections.

EDITORIAL NOTE: Hall of Fame inductees are selected based on three primary considerations: the historic, aesthetic, and cultural significance of each inductee. In recent years, the controversiality of a production or an individual inducted into the Hall of Fame calls into question the production’s or the individual’s inclusion. Once an inductee is made part of the Hall of Fame, they will not be removed for any reason. We will however acknowledge the toxicity of certain productions or individuals and will do our best to note this where possible. Please see our footnotes for details. If you see something of a controversial nature that has not been addressed, please let us know and we’ll be more than happy to acknowledge it.
