Craig’s next project was the Broadway production of “To Be or Not to Be” however he withdrew from the production in 2008, but then returned to stage in the revival of “Guys and Dolls” the following year; the show went on to run for 113 performances. Two years later, he was cast in the production of “Company” alongside Neil Patrick Harris and Stephen Colbert, and Craig then replaced Bertie Carvel in “Matilda the Musical” playing Miss Trunchbull, however, he also had to withdraw early from the role due to injuries. One of his latest projects is the series “UnREAL” in which he plays the eccentric Chet.
