“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 five decades.
Unrivaled in popularity throughout the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s, Lewis drew
standing room only houses wherever he played, including at Meyers lake Park in 1936 and 1938 as well as the Canton Palace Theatre in 1941.
Don’t miss this swinging, fast-paced musical revue, presented by the Ted Lewis Museum, that is guaranteed to make “Everybody Happy!”

American Musical Moments, a new concert series presented by the Canton Comic Opera Company, explores America’s popular music from 1890-1950. The concerts will feature both fondly remembered as well as unjustly forgotten music and performers, ranging from vaudeville to musical comedy, and from radio to motion pictures. This series will contextualize American operetta in the framework of the popular music of the period.
