Vancouver Fringe Festival 2018 – Tomatoes Tried to Kill Me But Banjos Saved My Life

tomatoes-tried-to-kill-meTomatoes 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.

First of all, it’s a great title.  The moment I sat down and saw Keith Alessi cradling his banjo, I was glad I’d come.  He has a pleasant presence, and I immediately felt relaxed, at ease, and happy.

I have seen some great shows this year, but this one seemed to encompass the spirit of the fringe festival more than any of them.  An honest and touching story; the performer shares his life and his music with us.

I don’t know what it was exactly, but he created an atmosphere that was so pleasing to be in; despite a lot of sadness in the show, I think I had a smile on my face the entire time, from the moment I sat down.  It would be a shame to miss this little gem of a show.
