The Lincoln Theatre
"Is Everybody Happy?" Join The Ted Lewis Orchestra as they bring back the music of the "High-Hatted Tragedian of Song" with Joseph Rubin and his entertainers in The Rhythm Rhapsody Revue! Relive Lewis' famous hits "When My Baby Smiles at Me," "The St. Louis Blues," "The Sunny Side of the Street," "The Tiger Rag," and of course, "Me and My Shadow"! With his trademark battered, old top hat and clarinet, Circleville's own Ted Lewis captured the hearts of audiences for six decades. Unrivaled in popularity throughout the 1920s, '30s and '40s, Lewis drew standing room only houses wherever he played, including a record-breaking total of 54 days at the RKO Palace and Loew's Ohio Theatres in Columbus. Don't miss this swinging, fast-paced musical revue, presented by the Ted Lewis Museum, that is guaranteed to make "Everybody Happy!"

After meeting on a train, the two con artists attempt to work together. Trouble is, they soon find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them! They agree on a settlement: The first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, soap heiress Christine Colgate, wins the bet - and the loser must leave town! What ensues is a hilarious battle of cons that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
