Slide “The evening’s charismatic glue… is supplied by the terrific Keira Naughton, as the central character…” Slide “Keira Naughton commands the stage in nearly every scene.” Slide “She’s also the emotional hub from which the several spokes of ‘Proof’ radiate...” Slide “Naughton… does an exceptional job capturing the pain, anger, sadness, and longing beneath Rebecca’s goofy-loser persona.” Slide “Naughton is so dynamic that she’s a bulwark against doubt.” Slide “Sweetly believable as a child at a birthday party, … she is most memorable, playing way beyond her age, as an older woman with dementia, insisting that it is time to go home after Thanksgiving dinner and unable to understand that she is already there.”

Keira Naughton From the Critics

“Higgy’s friend Ulcie, a floozy exuberantly played by Keira Naughton, is hilarious.”

The New York TimesUlcie, These Paper Bullets

“Throughout the show, there’s a deft mix of theatricality and reality. This is personified by Keira Naughton… She is masterful at bringing stage presence and a compelling voice to characters that are described onstage as plain, desperate, anxiety ridden and otherwise conventionally unattractive and non-heroic. Yet Naughton always is able to show inner sensitivities, sensualities and senses of humor that may not be outwardly acknowledged yet are essential to the roles she plays. Seriously, someone should do a festival of David Lindsay-Abaire plays and star Keira Naughton in all of them.”

New Haven Theater JerkRebecca, I Saw My Neighbor on the Train and Didn’t Even Smile

“Higgy’s posse, which includes the hilariously salacious Ulcie (Keira Naughton), would fit right in with the ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ crowd.”
