Hi, Beth and Nancy! My daughter, Katie and I were with these ladies on 8/6/05 when we saw Stephen portray the Phantom. He was AMAZING and I'm so glad we were there on one of his days in this role. Ditto everything Elizabeth said. Afterward we met him and he was incredibly gracious and friendly. He signed autographs and posed for pictures until everyone was taken care of. I'm happy to read that he has a daughter close to my girl's age. This was her first time seeing POTO on stage (she adores the movie). She LOVED it! Mr. Buntrock, she does a great impersonation of you from the rooftop scene! I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it such a special day for us. Anytime you want to come down our way for a civil war event I'm sure Nancy will put you up! Okay, so would we. You, your girlfriend, your daughter, bring the whole gang! Faith, thanks for the website.

We see a lot of Broadway shows, and whichever ones we like we see again and again. Yesterday we saw Panthom for the 11th time over a span of nine years. It was the first time we have seen Stephen do the role. Well, we were totally blown away. No one else ever played the part with as much feeling and sensitivity (and sheer talent) as Stephen. He portrayed the torment of the Panthom unlike anyone else we have seen.We could feel his pain in every movement,gesture and song. Words cannot say how we enjoyed the total portrayal he gave. We are sure every role he has done has been equally wonderful, due to his obvious talent. All we can say is that we sincerely hope we see Stephen perform again...we certainly will watch for him and make a point of trying to see him perform. Please let him know how very much we were impressed, and will never forget his portrayal...He gave us a truly unforgettable theater memory.(8/14)

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing you as the Phantom yesterday in New York! I was part of a group of 25 people who came from the Washington, DC area to see the play, and we were pleased that you'd be singing the lead. We were amazed with your talent and your athleticism in the demanding role, and your graciousness in greeting your fans after the performance. Thank you for a great theater experience and many pleasant memories.

Going up to NY to see Phantom with lots of Gerard Butler fans, and after seeing Stephen Buntrock's info on the Net we're all looking forward to seeing him and would dearly love to meet him afterwards. :-)
Seems a very gracious man.

My brother, Dave, and I swam with Stephen
on the Mudrats in Naperville, IL. I was
looking for the latest on my cousin, Jason
Hentrich, who is allegedly performing
somewhere in New York, and I stumbled onto
Stephen's name on Broadway.
Congratulations! Hope to see him sometime
in NY or San Francisco!

I worked with Steve on several shows at candlelight dinner playhouse if there is any way to say hi to him please do that for me.

Great site! I'm just so disappointed that Stephen left the POTO tour before I got to see him perform! Hopefully he'll be back soon. I've heard great things about him from his fans and Hugh. Best wishes!

Dear Steve,

I can't believe that I'm writing this and I do not know if you will even remember who I am. This is Megan, I was in "Joseph" with you in Chicago about 11 years ago (I think)! You used to come and play the card game "Spit" with Maureen and I during our breaks between shows. I was thinking about "Joseph" the other day and you popped in my head so I decided to try and see what you were up to, and here you are. I'm now 21 years old and a junior in college. Long time, huh?!?! I just wanted to say Congratulations on everything you've accomplished and Good Luck with everything else that you do!! Take Care, Steve.

I just wanted to say that I'm a big fan of The Phantom of the Opera, and I have been since I was 12 years old. I can't wait to see the performance when it comes through Dallas, or Fort Worth, Texas. Its been awhile since I've seen it, but with Stephen playing in the performance, I'm sure it will be great! Amber

I was reading on another site that Stephen had recently married Erin Dilley. I thought he was already married to Jamie Gangi. Confusion! Have Stephen and Jamie split up? (Well, duh, I guess so, if he married someone else). I was just wondering if this was true, or if someone is making stuff up.

Funny, I saw Stephen in Joseph at the Fox theatre in Detroit many years and was pleasantly surprised. Steve and I both went to Naperville North together and though he may not remember me, he at one point of my high school career was a very good friend. I will never forget that and will always support him, whether he knows it or not. Love to you and the family.

Wow, great site!

I first saw Steve and Jamie in Joseph in Chicago. I was very impressed by their wonderful voices (boy, Jamie can really hit the high ones!). Both of them were always pleasant and gracious at the stage door, too.

At the time I worked for a major airline in Phoenix, AZ, so I was able to travel all over the country for free ... I must have seen Joseph 20 or 30 times. I was glad to be able to help Steve and Jamie out with airline guest passes when they moved to New York.

I was disappointed when Steve left the show, but was ecstatic to find him again in Les Mis! I went back to see it again and again .... and cried every time he "died" on the barricade! What a gentleman .. he remembered me from the Joseph days and always seemed pleased to see me at the stage door.

Alas, I no longer work for the airlines, so I don't know if I'll ever be able to see him again, but I am so glad to have found this site so that I can keep tabs on where he's going, and in what! Who knows, maybe he'll come back to the Pacific Northwest in another tour!

Thanks for this great site .. keep up the good work.

I'm Eric's brother. Don't worry about him; I think he's stupid too. Speaking of which, at the "swimming" event he was discussing, Steve hit my other brother (not Eric) in the crotch with a volley ball. Steve, you can't hide forever...

Last night i saw phantom here in baltimore...i am totally obsessed with the show. So when i got to the theatre and heard that the understudy was playing the role of the phantom that evening i was a little worried...hopefully this stephen could do the role justice. He sure did!!! Mr. Buntrock has a truly sensational voice, and made the phantom his own last evening...congrats!!!

I haven't seen Steve in a show since we went to High School together! Great to see he is doing well!

After over a year of anticipation at seeing the show again and a five hour plane flight to Salt Lake City, my first thought upon seeing the notice board listing an understudy I'd never heard of as The Phantom was, 'Oh, crud!'
But we took our seats and waited for the show to start. I was bracing myself for the worst at that first line when Mr. Buntrock's lovely tenor comes over the sound system. Needless to say, I waited with considerably less terror for the real action to begin.... I'll spare all of the details, but let me just say that it was one of the best performances I've seen. The almost childlike confusion and naivete made for a wonderfully unique and heartwrenching interpretation of the character, and Mr. Buntrock's wonderful voice matched that very well. (I later had the chance had the chance to see the show again with Gary Mauer and was rather shocked. He's one of my favorite Raoul's and I'm sure he's a wonderful person but unless we caught him on three off nights in a row, he doesn't seem to have the emotional range to effectively convey the character. His Music of the Night frightens me.) If Mr. Buntrock ever checks these boards, I would just like to say thank you for making my trip even better...

Stephen...if you're reading this, hello. Thanks for singing so beautifully & romantically at the wedding last June.
Hope to see you as The Phanton...that's why I'm here...looking for info on where & when. Also, I hope to visit you & E in your new home sometime after your summer "activity". :)
Take care,

Hello Stephen!
Don't know if you'll remember me-- but we met on the Antietam filmshoot. I saw you in Detroit in Martin Guerre and hoped to get to NY for Oklahoma but didn't make it (had to watch you on the TV instead).
Anyway, break a leg and maybe we'll catch you on stage (or in Maryland) one of these days.
