While this new venue is limited to those who are over 21, there are still no cover charges or ticket prices to attend the show.

Rye Myers says "I am just thrilled that The Dickens has opened its doors to my Broadway talk show to make it its new weekly home venue and to continue the purpose of bringing joy, laughter and the love of Broadway to everyone in New York City and beyond. The fact that we can combine the love for theater in a space that is, well, very gay, I find to be just so fitting! I am so grateful to Bryan here and his terrific staff who have helped me to make this possible. The Broadway community needs a place to gather at the end of the week after the shows end and I am thrilled that Live with Rye & Friends on Broadway can make that happen with help of The Dickens as its venue!"

See why audiences are raving about Live with Rye & Friends on Broadway and calling it "the best Broadway talk show of the decade!" and why audiences come out week after week to see "a show that makes them smile and takes them away from what is going on in the world, at least for an hour of their day." Rye Myers is being praised for his passionate, influential, fun, and deep-diving conversations with some of the best names in the Broadway and theater industry! And as his theme song so cleverly states, he is "the gay Ryan Seacrest" of his generation.
