At age 12, Dee Dee Perry told a local reporter that she wanted to be an actress when she grew up. A few years later, she joined Columbia University’s Black Theater Ensemble, and in addition to acting with the group, she produced her first play, Robert Alexander's I Ain’t Yo’ Uncle, at Miller Theater. Many moons later, she became a backer of an Off-Broadway adaptation of The Picture of Dorian Gray, and later the critically acclaimed Broadway play, American Son (starring Kerry Washington, which was later made into a movie on Netflix). Her goal with DJDL Productions is to continue to tell stories that captivate the imagination, highlight a broad spectrum of talent, and explore the complexities and simplicities of humanity.
