Niagara University Theatre Professor Choreographing World Premier of Eddie Money Musical
The world premiere of a new musical created by and starring legendary rocker Eddie Money is being choreographed by Niagara University associate professor Terri Filips Vaughan.
Since September, Vaughan has been working with the Grammy-nominated musician on Two Tickets to Paradise: The Musical, an autobiographical production that features the Money Man himself, alongside a cast that includes several Niagara University alumni.
Heather Casseri, Matthew Divita, Shelby Ehrenreich and Peter Raimondo – all 2017 graduates of NU – are among the ensemble cast who dance and sing through Money’s life story and rock ‘n’ roll journey. Another 2017 Niagara alumnus, Matthew Dell’Olio, is assisting Vaughan with choreography and serving as hair and makeup designer.
The show includes Money classics like “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Baby Hold On,” “I Wanna Go Back” and “Take Me Home Tonight,” plus new songs that were written by Money specifically for the musical.
