The One-Question Interview: David Cromer
Q: If they were to name a sandwich after you at Pappa Charlie’s Deli – the Spring Street landmark where combos are named for Williamstown Theatre Festival celebrities – what would be on it?
A: I would like it to be a soft bread, maybe whole-grain, some grilled chicken and parmesan. Basically, it would be a Burger King chicken sandwich. (laughs) That’s what I would like.
