IT’S A HIT !! The Helen Hayes box office reports that Rupert Holmes’ new comedy-thriller THUMBS (starring Kathie Lee Gifford & Diana Canova) is now THE MOST SUCCESSFUL PLAY IN ITS HISTORY!!
“In THUMBS, playwright Rupert Holmes SETS THE STAGE FOR FUN, GAMES and CONSIDERABLE SELF-PARODY with the fluid help of director Marcia Milgrom Dodge. DON’T SPOIL THE SURPRISES! Holmes is crafty enough to plant a trap in virtually every device so that the ethically-inclined will reveal nothing!”
“Holmes, who penned the Broadway smash 'THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD' has another hit on his hands."
THE NEW YORK POST
“What makes Rupert Holmes unique as a playwright of mysteries is his ability to keep you guessing. He expertly uses lightning-fast plot twists, red herrings and misdirection to craft a story puzzle for the discriminating sleuth."
“KATHIE LEE and DIANA CANOVA are MADE FOR EACH OTHER! Their chemistry is instant and indelible. THE TWO ACHIEVE THE STUFF OF LEGENDARY PAIRINGS!”
