Miranda stars as the electric & disarming Raya, a high school soccer captain struggling with her identity, in Angeline DiMambro’s
Steal the Bacon, which will premiere at the 2023 Columbia University Film Festival before launching a larger festival campaign.
Miranda made her Off-Broadway acting, writing, and directing debut with The Ultimate Manic Pixie Dream Girl Speed-Dating Competition. The play, co-written by her friend and former classmate, Maya Shoham, was selected by the annual Lighthouse Series’ playwriting competition and had a run at the historic Off-Broadway theatre, SoHo Playhouse.
This spring, Miranda performed as Ismene with Theater Dionysus in a new modern adaptation of Antigone, written and directed by Daniel Libin.
A night of theatre! Miranda acted in 'Good Friends Productions,' inaugural performance, Four Plays & A Poem, at Highside Workshop in Brooklyn...
Miranda performed in the premiere of
Earth To Venus, devised by Rachel Collignon. She helped create her character, Jade; a misunderstood writer desperate to get published who spends her time in and out of psych wards.
"Her Philomele was contagious in her enthusiasm and gut-wrenching in her experience of sickening male coercion."
"(Philomele) seemed to be fighting against the very nature of the world that Miranda so meticulously crafted as the creator of the piece. Quite an amazing achievement as an actor-director."
Miranda participated in Atlantic’s ‘Throughline Festival’ where she directed, choreographed, & led a production of Timberlake Wertenbaker’s Greek tragedy; The Love of the Nightingale, a feminist retelling of the Ovidian myth that follows the rape of Philomela.
Full cast includes; Miranda Renée as Philomele, Christine Treuhold as Procne, Xander Furman as Tereus, Grace Rucci as Iris, Olivia Rubin as June,

"We saw the impressive physical commitment of her Clov (we basically started to sweat along with her as we put ourselves in her shoes, the shoes of endless physical tasks completed for Hamm.)"
Some other festival performances included;
Clov in Beckett’s Endgame,
Gertrude in Hamlet,
& Anna in Pinter’s Old Times.
"Her Anna was full of finesse but also frighteningly poised and seemed to be tough as nails, physically relaxed, and thus able to perform Pinter with ease and simplicity. "
Miranda performed as Wanda, who has to help a woman give birth after accidentally eating pot brownies, in Laundromat directed by Mahima Saigal, as part of Atlantic's One-Act Play Festival.
"She is a great comedic actress and really leans towards the big choices (which I loved and enjoyed) She exudes an infectious energy and commands the stage with her presence."
