The Floyd Country Store is pleased to welcome Keith Alessi back to our stage for a special virtual performance of his award-winning one man show “Tomatoes Tried to Kill Me But Banjos Saved My Life.” Many of the scenes and stories from Keith’s show are inspired by memories from The Floyd Country Store. Keith presented this show in a sold-out run Off-Broadway in New York City last year. Join us for this virtual show on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 7:30pm EDT, aired live through The Floyd Country Store Facebook and Youtube page.
Before taking to the stage, Keith was well known as a successful public company CEO and college professor. He has led companies in both Canada and the United States.
Encouraged by others to tell his personal story of challenges and triumph, Keith wrote ‘Tomatoes Tried to Kill Me’ and has performed in 11 Fringe Festivals across Canada, the US, and the UK since July 2018. His show was selected as one of 18 “best of” shows, worldwide, to participate in The Fringe Encore Series, Off Broadway, at the Soho Playhouse in New York City, where he had a sold out run in December, 2019.
A dual Canadian/US citizen, Keith splits his time between Vancouver, British Columbia and Virginia. He is a certified public accountant and received his MBA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In his free time, he pursues his passions of flying and banjos!
