Episode 14 – Literally Nothing About Spiders: A Comparison of the Daddy Long Legs Novel and the Musical Adaptation

Jen and Rachel compare and contrast the 1912 novel Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster with its 2015 Off-Broadway musical adaptation by the same name. In their discussion, they touch upon the epistolary format, how a character’s portrayal influences readers’ interpretations, Broadway accessibility, and whether Jen’s fave is problematic or not. 

Spoilers ahead for the book, but not quite as many for the musical. Confused as to how that’s possible? Guess you’ll have to listen to find out!
