Peter Neufeld began his career in the theatre in 1968 as a company manager of Broadway shows. In 1971, in partnership with R. Tyler Gatchell, Jr., he founded the long-running General Management and Producing company, Gatchell & Neufeld, Ltd. Their first hit was the enormously popular 1971 revival of No, No, Nanette, starring Ruby Keeler. Also in 1971, Gatchell & Neufeld, Ltd. began a long relationship with the composer and producer, Andrew Lloyd Webber.

In addition to General Management of the following Lloyd Webber shows, they were Associate Producers of Jesus Christ Superstar (1971), and Executive Producers of Evita (1979), Starlight Express (1987), Song and Dance (1985), and Cats (1982). Gatchell & Neufeld, Ltd. credits also include, Murder Among Friends (1975), Annie (1977), Sweeney Todd (1979), Oliver!

Following the death of his partner, R. Tyler Gatchell, Jr., in 1993, Mr. Neufeld closed Gatchell & Neufeld, Ltd. He turned his attentions to serving the theatre industry as a volunteer at a number of AIDS organizations. In 1995 he joined the professional staff of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

In 2005, Mr. Neufeld was awarded a Tony® Honor for a lifetime of excellence in the theater.
