Irene is an agent at DDO Artists Agency (NYC), a boutique agency representing actors, singers and dancers for theater, film and television. Over the past few years, Irene has developed a first-class roster that can be seen on Broadway and off-Broadway stages, in regional, touring and international productions, and on episodic television and films. She has also been instrumental in launching DDO's children's department.
Prior to joining DDO, she was a producer and an artist manager, with a passionate commitment to nurturing artists of color and championing work that expands boundaries of race, gender and identity.
She worked with visionary writer/director/producer George C. Wolfe at The Public Theater for 14 years. She began as co-founder of The Public's Community Affairs department, a nationwide model for audience development, and went on to become a key member of the producing team on countless award-winning plays and musicals, working with some of the finest artists working today, such as Tony Kushner, Jeanine Tesori, Suzan-Lori Parks and Nilo Cruz. Launching George C. Wolfe's independent production company ColorMad Productions, she worked on his film Lackawanna Blues for HBO and Rosie Perez's documentary Yo Soy Boricua for IFC. She went on to develop and produce music, stage and television projects with Grammy Award-winning musician/activist Dan Zanes. She is currently working on the pre-production of Black Girl, You've Been Gentrified, a television pilot with Epoch Films.
Irene moved to the United States from her native Puerto Rico in 1984. She was named Personaje de la Semana, and Top 50 Latinas of the Year by El Diario La Prensa for her commitment to developing and producing works of artists of color. She was also featured in Latina Magazine's Latina Mothers in America. She lives in New York City with her husband (tap dancer/choreographer Derick K. Grant) and their two teenage children.
