Let the OverDrive staff entertain you as we hit the Great White Way to discuss books that have been adapted into Broadway musicals! Adam and Jill are joined by their co-worker Meghan who is also a theater nerd and the three of them share their great love of books and the stage in this week's episode. (There might also be some singing involved because, well, why not?)
