Born in NYC, this talented actor/singer/musician studied music at Princeton University before attending Juilliard and the Manhattan School of Music. Stillman made his professional stage debut in 1982 in Elizabeth Swados' and Julie Taymor's production of "The Haggadah" at the Public Theater. He subsequently created the role of Eddie Diamond, the title character's kid brother in Peter Allen's short-lived Broadway musical "Legs Diamond" (1988) and was featured as the desk clerk Erik in Tommy Tune's "Grand Hotel" a year later. Stillman's breakthrough performance, however, came in 1994 when he assumed the lead role of Molina, a gay prison inmate obsessed with a film star (played by Vanessa L Williams) in the Broadway production of the dark, psychological musical "Kiss of the Spider Woman". Stillman followed that role up with a stunning portrayal of an ex-gospel singer/songwriter with AIDS recording his swan song in the Off-Broadway hit "The Last Session" (1998). In addition to giving a deft performance as Gideon, Stillman also sang, played the piano and provided the show's musical direction and arrangements. He later headed the L.A. company, earning a Los Angeles Drama Critics' Circle Award and an Ovation nomination. The actor garnered his first Tony nomination in 2000 for his outstanding portrayal of several of the many men in actress Mae West's life in the musical bio-play "Dirty Blonde". Not only did Stillman act in the Claudia Shear vehicle, for which all three cast members were honored with Tony nominations, but he also wrote the play's title song and played the piano on stage.
Despite his success in the theater, Stillman has not limited himself to performing on stage nor given up his love for writing and playing music. The actor spent three seasons in the mid- to late-1990s on Nickelodeon's now-defunct children's TV program "Allegra's Window", for which he had written many songs. He also wrote and co-produced the popular spin-off music videos "Reed's Sound Jars". He has performed live in numerous New York venues, including a 1998 Adam Guettel concert called "Saturn Returns" at the Public Theater.

|On his decision to become an actor, Bob Stillman told The New York Times (April 30, 2000): "On day I just woke up and realized, 'Nah, I don't want to be a concert pianist.'"|
