Read certain sections of the Bible, and you will learn: "Samson went to Gaza, and there he saw a prostitute, and he went in to her. . . . he loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. . . . And the Philistines seized him and gouged out his eyes and brought him down to Gaza and bound him with bronze shackles. And he ground at the mill in the prison. . . . And she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when your heart is not with me? You have mocked me these three times, and you have not told me where your great strength lies.”
Lots of S&D movies (remember Norma watching a scene being filmed in Sunset Blvd?).
According to the Gospel of Broadway Records, we will soon have a concept recording of a brand new CD of songs from the forthcoming new musical Samson & Delilah. This will be be released digitally on February 7 and on CD on February 11t, to coincide with Valentine’s Day. The CD is now available for pre-order at There will be a special 54 Below album launch concert January 29 and January 30 at 9:30 p.m. where attendees will be able to buy the album 2 weeks early.
No eyes or ears to be gouged.
This contemporary pop/rock concept album, with music and lyrics by Ron Yatter, features newly married American Idol stars Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo in the title roles. The songs are a unique combination of classic legit theater and pop/rock, creating a new musical sound that tells the epic, tragic love story of the biblical couple from two different worlds.
Though they both launched to stardom after appearing in different seasons on American Idol, it was in the Broadway revival of Hair where Ace and Diana met and fell in love. “Their love informs their beautiful and exciting portrayals of the album songs,” gushes Yatter.
“We are thrilled to add Ace and Diana to the Broadway Records family," says Van Dean, co-founder of Broadway Records. "Their credits span both theater and pop music and their own love story make them the perfect portrayers of the album’s emotional musical journey."
