Major Site Redesign
If you've visited this site before, you might notice that it looks a little different. Having realized I hadn't done any major design work on the site in 8 years, I recently revisited every detail on the site while also upgrading the platform to ASP.net.
Most content is the same, but changes beyond the overall look include:
- Many old photos (Les Mis, Miss Saigon, Martin Guerre) have been rescanned at larger image sizes
- 2 new articles linked to the press page.
- Reviewed all links, and removed broken ones
- Added an rss feed
Please contact me
if there are any problems. Compliments are also always welcome. ;)

Beauty and the Beast Page Added
Merry Christmas! A new page has been added for Beauty and the Beast
, in which Stephen begins performances tomorrow. Best of wishes to him on his newest role.
Since I was already working on the site, I also made some tweaks to various pages including the About
Due to the fact that the guestbook was receiving an incredible amount of spam, it has been reprogrammed so that all entries are reviewed before they are posted live to the site. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but I will approve all legitimate entries as soon as humanly possible.
Also, I've done a little updating to the Phantom
page, and added a few more links at various pages on the site.
This and That
Just jotting down a note so it doesn't look like I've forgotten about the site. I've added the next few stops to the list of Phantom
tour venues and I've also updated the text on the Sign the Guestbook
The Phantom of the Opera
page now displays the weather for the current stop of the tour, courtesy of weather.com. (As soon as the tour moves on, the location used for the weather display will be changed automatically.)
Phantom Page Added
A page has been added for info on Stephen's work in The Phantom of the Opera
. Also, the news
page has been revamped, various pages have been tweaked, and a lot of work has been done to the site backend to make managing the site even easier.
Harmony Page Added
A page for Stephen Buntrock's latest project, Harmony, has now been added to the site. The "Current" link on the site now points here.
New Website Email Address
Because I have become fed up with receiving inordinate amounts of spam at the Email address I had been publishing on this site, I have disabled that address and created a new one to use instead. The contact information for the site is always current on the Contact
Updated the Bio
page to use the bio printed in the playbill for Putting It Together
, which recently ended a successful run at the Cape Playhouse in Dennis, MA.

New Contact Form
I've added a Contact
page since it may not have been clear to remove the spam blockers from the various Email links on the site. This simple form is for contacting the webmaster with your questions and comments; feel free to use it!
Also, a link to Wayman Wong's terrific PlaybillOnline.com interview has recently been added to the News.asp
New interview link posted
Check out the News
page for a link to a new Broadway.com interview with Buntrock.
There are a couple new links added to the Oklahoma!
page which include photos of Stephen as Curly. I've added a graphic to automatically point out which links are new, so be sure to give the Current Project page a glance every now and then if you ever want to see if there are any new links of interest.
And a happy and healthy new year to all!
Once again, the site has undergone a slight redesign and renovation. The changes are mainly in the menu bar and in page layouts, as well as in some behind the scenes functionality. Some more minor changes may or may not be implemented in the coming days.
I am in the process of doing general site maintenance and improvements; so you are not going crazy if you think some pages look slightly different.
New Scroller on Home Page
Removed the java applet from the top of the front page
Added a photo, which ran in print editions of the 5/24/02 article on understudies, to the Misc. Photos
News Article Added
Added a link to a new AP article about understudies which features Stephen; Also revamped some of the links on various pages to remove dead links.
If you've been to the site before, you may notice that it has been revamped and redesigned. This website has evolved in the past 2+ years and so it made sense to work on reorganizing things; while doing so, I decided I might as well try something a bit different with the design. Hope everyone enjoys the new look!
Note- many of the file names have changed, so if you've bookmarked any pages other than the main page, you may have to update your bookmarks.
Oklahoma! Page Added

news and info; This page is now the page that is linked
to the "Current" link in the top menu, though the Jane
page still exists. One of the features of the new page
is an interactive calendar applet with performance info. I admit there
really is little point to the applet other than the fact that I am
insanely proud of programming it myself and (finally) getting it to
