March on! Suffs on Broadway turns the clock one century back to the onset of the women’s suffrage movement in America. Suffs, written and composed by award-winning theatremaker Shaina Taub in her Broadway debut, echoes their voices and examines the lives and legacies of the movement’s key leaders. Set an alert for Suffs tickets in New York on TodayTix.
The legendary women celebrated in Suffs are to thank for the creation of the 19th Amendment, but how did the seven preceding years of protests lead to progress? With an honest lens, Suffs explores all the events leading up to this historic moment for women’s rights, and the impactful, although imperfect, women behind them.
Suffs shows not only the groundbreaking tools of protest created by the suffragists, but the cracks in the foundation that they built. Suffs allows American audiences in the 2020s to look back on this crucial 1920s movement. Get Suffs tickets soon on TodayTix.

Most people have heard of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, but they're far from the only influential suffragists. In fact, the main characters of Suffs — including Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells, and Inez Milholland — often clash with Anthony's generation of older suffragists who don't believe in disruptive protests as a means of activism. Paul and co. triumphed, but the musical also sheds light on their imperfections, too — namely, how the white leaders often pushed activists of color to the sidelines. Indeed, the Nineteenth Amendment only applied to white women.
Suffs premiered at The Public Theater in spring 2022 with a cast including Jenn Colella, Nikki M. James, Phillipa Soo, and Taub herself.
