Since then, the comic duo have won a 2012 New York State TANYS Award, a Coney Island Award, and are currently touring throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
"We plan on conquering Connecticut next," enthuses Bev, who notes an obscure connection between Abbott and Costello and The Wizard of Oz: "In the movie, Bert Lahr as the Cowardly Lion does a joke that ends with 'Talk me out of it'. This joke was used a number of times by Lou Costello in movies, on TV and radio. It's a joke that goes back to minstral shows, Burlesques and Vaudeville."
The Lafayette Theater opened its doors on a March 3,1924. Several years ago, it was named one of the top ten movie palaces in the country.
