Check out what the critics are saying about the show!
Vancouver Presents: “Fringe review: Tomatoes Tried to Kill Me But Banjos Saved My Life is an intimate and affecting show.”
The Paper (Fupaper.blog) New York City
"An honest telling of one man’s journey. Alessi’s performance manages to be warm, tear-jerking, and humorous all at once – a gem in New York City’s off-off-Broadway scene."
Theatre Is Easy (New York City): "Keith Alessi's Italian-Canadian corporate-to-banjo story is thoroughly entertaining."
"Alessi's story is straightforward, vulnerable, heartwarming, and full of traditional “old time” music of the Southern United States."
Sherpadoo.com (Vancouver): “Tomatoes Tried to Kill Me, But Banjos Saved My Life is a show in the true spirit of Fringe. The performance will put a smile on your face, leaving you glad and happy.”
Katie’s Picks: “If the name isn’t enough to grab your attention, maybe you will be happy to hear that this show is for all ages. And the tomatoes are evil.”
