About Suffs on Broadway

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. Get Suffs tickets in New York on TodayTix.

The 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920, giving women the right to vote. The legendary women celebrated in Suffs, who had taken to the streets since 1913, are to thank. But how did seven 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 on TodayTix.

More information about Suffs on Broadway

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.

What to watch for

  • The entire lead creative team (Taub, director Leigh Silverman, and choreographer Mayte Natalio) and head producing team of Suffs are women. Joining lead producers Jill Furman and Rachel Sussman are Hillary Rodham Clinton and Malala Yousafzai!
  • Feeling deja vu? Another historical musical, Hamilton, got its start at the Public back in 2015. Like Suffs, one person (Lin-Manuel Miranda) wrote the entirety of Hamilton and played the starring role.
  • Taub was the 2014 recipient of the Jonathan Larson Award. More recently, she collaborated with Elton John on the score for the new Devil Wears Prada musical adaptation!
  • Phillipa Soo knows her way around a historical role — she earned a Tony nomination for playing Eliza Hamilton in Hamilton.
  • Natalio is doubly represented on Broadway in the 2023-24 season. A few months before Suffs opened, she made her Broadway debut with another new musical, How to Dance in Ohio.
  • In 2020, The New York Times profiled the Suffs team for the documentary series Offstage. The documentary series highlighted the impact of Covid-19 on theatremaking in 2020.
