Hello Sweet Prince - May Flights of Angels Bring Thee to My Ears

Yes, I know, the news is already out there all over the fandom, but I'm so excited about it I just had to post it on my blog.


Richard Armitage to perform Hamlet, a Novel

We are thrilled to announce that the Hamlet, a Novel, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed international bestseller Macbeth, a Novel, co-written by A.J. and David Hewson will be out on audio on May 20th, performed by the incomparable Richard Armitage.
Armitage has a history of playing Shakespeare but is probably best known internationally for his portrayal of Thorin Oakenshield in the recent Hobbit movies, as well as Guy of Gisborne in the BBC’s Robin Hood, Lucas North in Spooks and John Thornton in North and South.
As with Macbeth, a Novel, A.J. and David have set out to retell a version of Shakespeare’s story in the style of a period thriller, full of intrigue and excitement, giving Armitage a full cast of characters with which to demonstrate his considerable reach and power as an actor, as well as utilizing the rich musicality of his voice!.

Was this a clue Richard? 

"...I’m going to find something which I really want to do, and I’d love doing. And it will probably be something classical I think."
