Following its run at the Public Theatre, Suffs has set a 2024 Broadway bow at the Music Box Theatre with opening night set for April 18, 2024. Jill Furman and Rachel Sussman are producing the Broadway premiere, with Hillary Clinton and Malala Yousafzai as co-producers.
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. This new musical takes a look at these unsung trailblazers. In the seven years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, 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.
Suffs will feature book, music and lyrics by Kleban Prize, Fred Ebb Award, and Jonathan Larson Grant recipient Shaina Taub, direction by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman, choreography by Mayte Natalio, scenic design by Tony Award nominee Riccardo Hernández, costume design by Tony Award winner Paul Tazewell, lighting design by Tony Award nominee Lap Chi Chu, sound design by Jason Crystal and associate Sun Hee Kil, orchestrations by Tony Award winner Michael Starobin, music supervision and music direction by Andrea Grody, and casting by Heidi Griffiths and Kate Murray. 101 Productions, Ltd. will serve as General Manager.
Casting and ticketing information will be announced at a later date. To stay up to date on Suffs, sign up at SuffsMusical.com or follow the show on Facebook and Instagram at @SuffsMusical.
