Craig is excited to be a part of "Atomic View Hotel." Previous New York credits include "The Last Cyclist" directed by Edward Einhorn, "The Comedy of Errors" for Hudson Warehouse, "The Crucible" with Blunt Theater Company, Strindberg's "The Father" for Mushroom Theater Company, "Velvet Oratorio" for Untitled Theater Co. 61 and "Garlic & Gasoline," winner of audience favorite in Thespian Production's March one-act festival. Regional credits include "Hitchcock Blonde" with the Jungle Theater in Minneapolis, MN, "The Lion in Winter" and "Man of La Mancha" with Paul Bunyan Playhouse, and "Honk!" for Stages Theater. Craig's performance is dedicated to the memory of R.C. Anderson (1922 - 2011), who took a trip to Roswell, New Mexico as a young man and perhaps could have shed some additional light on the strange proceedings described in this play.
