Robert Neuhaus, Production Manager
Robert Neuhaus began his professional career at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago and went on to create sound designs for most major Chicago theatres, including Chicago Shakespeare, where his designs earned two Joseph Jefferson awards. In addition to his work in theatre, Robert designed sound systems for consulting firm Schuler Shook and produced seven seasons of the audio theatre series Chicago Theatres on the Air for WFMT and L.A.

Shortly after Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me went into production in early 1998 the demands of the show became a full-time job and Robert has been a member of the Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me technical production team ever since.
