'Suffs' Releases First Official Onstage Clip Of "G.A.B." Musical Number

Suffs, the new Broadway musical now in performances at the Music Box Theatre, is thrilled to share its first official onstage clip of the musical number “G.A.B.”, which stands for Great American Bitch. See the video for “G.A.B.” in the player above!

This number finds the Suffs raising a toast to the success of the 1913 Women’s Suffrage Procession (“The March”) and celebrating the impact it has had on the greater movement for women’s rights. After suffragist Doris Stevens shares that she had been called a “bitch” by a heckler during the march, the Suffs bond over their own experiences of being assertive as women only to be labeled a bitch as a result.

The song is performed by Tony Award nominee Shaina Taub in the role of Alice Paul, Kim Blanck as Ruza Wenclawska, Ally Bonino as Lucy Burns, Nadia Dandashi as Doris Stevens, and Hannah Cruz as Inez Milholland.

It’s 1913 and the women’s movement is heating up in America, anchored by the suffragists — “Suffs,” as they call themselves — and their relentless pursuit of the right to vote. Reaching across and against generational, racial, and class divides, these brilliant, flawed women entertain and inspire us with the story of their hard-won victory in an ongoing fight. So much has changed since the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment over a century ago, and yet we’re reminded sometimes we need to look back, in order to march fearlessly into the future.
