About Suffs on Broadway

Suffs, a new musical from Shaina Taub about the lives and legacies of unsung changemakers in the women’s suffrage movement of 1920, is marching onto Broadway with producers Hillary Rodham Clinton and Malala Yousafzai. Get Suffs tickets on New York Theatre Guide.

Just about century ago, the Nineteenth Amendment secured the voting rights of some women, largely thanks to key figures of the women’s suffrage movement: Inez Milholland, Ida B. Wells, and Alice Paul, to name a few. However, this movement was not without its faults. With an honest, 21st-century lens, the Suffs musical examines both the crucial building blocks and the cracks in the foundation of the women’s suffrage movement through the women that pioneered it.

With a book and score by fast-rising composer Shaina Taub (also known for collaborating with Elton John on The Devil Wears Prada musical), Suffs off Broadway brings forth an exciting new voice in musical theatre. Taub now makes her Broadway debut after winning the 2014 recipient of the esteemed Jonathan Larson Award and earning acclaim with her work composing and starring in the Public’s Twelfth Night and As You Like It musical adaptations.

Tony Award nominee and two-time Obie Award winner Leigh Silverman (Violet) directs Suffs on Broadway. She also staged the Off-Broadway premiere at The Public Theater in 2022. Taub starred in that production as Alice Paul alongside Nikki M. James as Wells, Phillipa Soo as Milholland, and more.
