"[Neufeld and Gatchell] were true men of the theatre who loved Broadway with passion, humor, requisite skepticism and were extremely nurturing of young people starting out on Broadway many of whom now run their own management offices and theatres," according to press notes.
The Gatchell and Neufeld Manager Grant will select yearly one manager at the start of his or her Broadway career and give that manager $1,000 to further his/her career. Applicants will be sought from the ATPAM apprentice program and Broadway producing, general management and theatre owner offices.
A committee is being established to award this grant and to develop criteria and the selection procedure. The first award is expected to be made in September 2015.
