The Public Theater will present the world premiere of Suffs, about the women who pioneered the women's suffrage movement. Suffs tickets will be available soon.
Suffs is a musical about the young women that took to the streets to fight for the equal right to vote. They clashed with the president, the public, and each other, but ultimately came together across generational, racial, and class divides to work for a common cause. The show is directed by Leigh Silverman and features a book, music, and lyrics by Shaina Taub.
Performances begin in March 2022. Check back for information on when tickets to Suffs off Broadway will be on sale.
A musical event one hundred years in the making, Suffs brings to life a complicated chapter in the ongoing battle for the right to vote: the American women’s suffrage movement. Written by and featuring one of the most exciting new voices in theater, Shaina Taub, this epic new musical takes an unflinching look at these unsung trailblazers. In the years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, an impassioned group of suffragists — “Suffs” as they called themselves — took to the streets, pioneering protest tactics that transformed the country. They risked their lives as they clashed with the president, the public, and each other. A thrilling story of brilliant, flawed women working against and across generational, racial, and class divides, Suffs boldly explores the victories and failures of a fight for equality that is still far from over.
