Shakespeare in the 70s: Jack Good's Catch My Soul

Norman Jopling, Music Now, 23 January 1971

CATCH MY SOUL, as you've doubtless read, is a rock musical based on Shakespeare's Othello. It was conceived by Jack Good who plays the title role, but most of the action is centred around Iago, played by Lance Le Gault. P.J.Proby also stars as Cassio, and P.P. Arnold was featured in the original production at the Roundhouse.

Total word count of piece: 2903
