The Divine Comedy’s Neil Hannon takes on London stage

Posted April 24th, 2007 by eric

It’s not exactly surprising that Neil Hannon has been tapped to write a musical for the London stage, as his songwriting lends itself well to flowery and theatrical arrangements. NME reports that the piece for The National Theater will be an adaptation of Arthur Ransom’s 1930 novella Swallows and Amazons. Hannon just recently contributed to Air’s Pocket Symphony, co-writing and singing “Somewhere between Waking and Sleeping.”
