With that said, Miranda is back to work again. She's been rehearsing for a production of The Great Gatsby (running 31 July âˆ’ 28 August at Circa Theatre). Tickets are currently on sale. If you're in Wellington, you should check it out. I would. I hear she's quite the stage actress.
In a welcome return to the Wellington stage, Miranda Manasiadis makes Daisy delightful and maddening in equal measure, which is just as it should be. Her understanding of how disempowered she is as a woman is poignantly expressed when she says of her daughter, “I hope she'll be a fool – that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.” But it’s Gatsby who observes, “Her voice is full of money … that was the inexhaustible charm that rose and fell in it, the jingle of it, the cymbals’ song of it ... high in a white palace the king’s daughter, the golden girl!” You can see what Duncum means about the poetry.
More photos have also been added on the Circa Theatre Facebook page.

Thanks for the links. It's so nice to finally get a sense of who Miranda is since we don't speak of the people in the guys' lives. And she appears to be a wonderfully down to earth, sweet, enthusiastic person. Lucky Jemaine!
The Great Gatsby looks like it's going to be a great show. And from the different links we can see that Miranda is very talented. How exciting for her to be able to continue on with her career even while being married to a very busy entertainer and being a mom. I love her description of Sopho. Sounds like a lovely child. Good for them all!
Bret plays cricket? I'm not surprised he's good at it. He's good at everything!
