Mira is stoked to be performing with ThreePenny Theatre again! She recently graduated from UVU, where she double majored in Theatre and English. Recent roles include Lady Macbeth (Macbeth; NYC), Astrov (Uncle Vanya; UVU), and Marianne (Constellations; UVU). This show has been a compelling impetus for connecting with her own Jewish ancestry, and she hopes it can serve similarly for others, inciting them to recognize important pieces of their own identity.
