Get To Know The Cast And Creative Team Of 'SUFFS' On Broadway

Recently, iHeartRadio Broadway got to chat with the cast of SUFFS. The cast and creative team discuss working with a full female creative team, bringing a this musical from the Public to Broadway, and their love for their cast. Watch our interview in the player above!

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.

Shaina Taub will play Alice Paul, the young suffragist at the forefront in the battle for women’s rights in the early 20th Century. Joining her are Nikki M. James (Tony Award winner for The Book of Mormon) as Ida B. Wells; Jenn Colella (Come From Away) as Carrie Chapman Catt; Grace McLean (Natasha, Pierre and The Great Comet of 1812) as President Woodrow Wilson; Hannah Cruz (MCC’s The Connector) as Inez Milholland; Kim Blanck (Signature Theatre’s Octet) as Ruza Wenclawska; Anastacia McCleskey (Waitress) as Mary Church Terrell; Ally Bonino (Broadway debut) as Lucy Burns; Tsilala Brock (The Book of Mormon National Tour) as Dudley Malone; Nadia Dandashi (Broadway debut) as Doris Stevens; Emily Skinner (Side Show) as Alva Belmont/Phoebe Burn; Hawley Gould (Lincoln Center Theater’s Camelot) as the alternate for Alice Paul; Jaygee Macapugay (Here Lies Love) as Mollie Hay; and Laila Drew (Broadway debut) as Phyllis Terrell/Robin. The cast and ensemble will also include Dana Costello, Jenna Bainbridge, Monica Tulia Ramirez, Ada Westfall, Christine Heesun Hwang, Kirsten Scott, Housso Semon and D’Kaylah Unique Whitley.
