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.”
– THE TIMES HERALD-RECORD
“KATHIE LEE and DIANA CANOVA are MADE FOR EACH OTHER! Their chemistry is instant and indelible. THE TWO ACHIEVE THE STUFF OF LEGENDARY PAIRINGS!”
