The brilliantly funny hit play “Serious Business” will return for it’s final run this weekend in Queens at York College on Saturday, July 24 and in Brooklyn at Wingate High School on Sunday, July 25. And patrons are not only looking forward to the play, which will close out it’s 2010 run. They are also anticipating the return of DJ Roy of IrieJam Radio and Road International, who will inject true dancehall vibes into the stagings.
Since Irish and Chin launched the theater arm of their dancehall promotions company in 2009, patrons have been raving over DJ Roy’s waist-moving sets of Reggae music. Way before the curtains of “Serious Business” open this weekend, theatergoers will be thoroughly entertained with great sounds. DJ Roy will also convert the play’s intermission into an all-out session.
“A lot of DJs would find using dancehall selections to entertain such a diverse audience as challenging,” says Garfield “Chin” Bourne of Irish and Chin. “However, DJ Roy makes it look so easy……the professionalism he brings to the table is flawless. All of his selections are clean and appropriate for all ages to enjoy. He gets the crowd involved and transforms the auditorium in a seated dancehall. If his sets were any longer… he would steal the show.”
As Irish and Chin has built a huge following of the plays they promote, the team decided to once again capitalize on their formula of dancehall and theater. Naturally, DJ Roy is a main ingredient of the formula…..so much so that the promotions team pegged DJ Roy to headline their U.S. Fall 2010 tour of Jamaica’s top play “The Plumber.”
In addition to great theater and sheer dancehall entertainment, theatergoers will be able to win sleek Ashley Living Room sets at stagings in Queens and Brooklyn. Truly a hit with patrons, entering into the drawing just requires submitting a ticket stub. To add to the excitement, the winners will be announced during the play.
The outrageously entertaining “Serious Business” has played before sold-out audiences through out their showings in the Tri-State area. By popular demand, the play will return for it’s final run this weekend. It’s ideal that the play will close out in the top market of New York. Patrons are encouraged to come out and enjoy a great evening of fun and entertainment for the entire family. And all will have a chance to see the last 2010 performance of Jamaica’s wildly popular actor Keith “Shebada” Ramsay.
