Digital lottery and rush policies have been revealed for the Broadway premiere of Suffsthe new musical following the suffragists and forgotten women who fought for the right to vote. The musical will begin previews at the Music Box Theatre March 26 ahead of an April 18 opening night.

The first 19 rush tickets sold in-person at the box office each morning between March 26 and April 17 will be sold at the price of $19.20, honoring the year that the 19th Amendment was ratified. After the first 19 tickets are sold, those in line for rush will still have the opportunity to purchase tickets at a standard rush price of $45.

A digital ticket lottery will also be available via Telecharge for the chance to win $49 tickets. The lottery will be open from midnight to 3 PM the day prior to each performance. Winners will be drawn at 10 AM and 3 PM the day of each performance. Winners will have five hours to claim and purchase up to two tickets.

Set in the years leading up to the 19th amendment, Suffs explores the Women's Suffrage movement's victories and failures with a book, music and lyrics by Shaina Taub. The musical previously had a sold-out run at the Public Theater in 2022.  Jill Furman and Rachel Sussman are producing the Broadway premiere, with Hillary Clinton and Malala Yousafzai as co-producers.

Taub will star in her own musical, reprising her Off-Broadway performance as Alice Paul, alongside Tony Award winner Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon) as Ida B. Wells, Tony Award nominee 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 as Inez Milholland, Kim Blanck as Ruza Wenclawska, Anastacia McCleskey (Waitress) as Mary Church Terrell, Ally Bonino as Lucy Burns, Tsilala Brock as Dudley Malone, Nadia Dandashi as Doris Stevens, and Tony Award nominee Emily Skinner (Side Show) as Alva Belmont/Phoebe Burn. All cast members—save for Skinner, McCleskey, and Blanck—are rejoining the cast from the Off-Broadway production. Bonino and Dandashi will make their Broadway debuts in the show.

The cast also includes Hawley Gould (Camelot) as the alternate for Alice Paul, Jaygee Macapugay (Here Lies Love) as Mollie Hay, and Laila Drew as Phyllis Terrell/Robin. The ensemble will include Dana Costello, Jenna Bainbridge Monica Tulia Ramirez, Ada Westfall, Christine Heesun Hwang, Kirsten Scott, Housso Semon, and D'Kaylah Unique Whitley.

Director Leigh Silverman will again direct the Broadway production, which will otherwise feature a largely new creative team. Aside from returning music supervisor and music director Andrea Grody, the Broadway creative team will include Suffs newcomers choreographer Mayte Natalio, scenic designer Riccardo Hernández, costume designer Paul Tazewell, lighting designer Lap Chi Chu, sound designer Jason Crystal, and orchestrator Michael Starobin. 101 Productions is serving as general manager.

The upcoming Broadway run looks like it will be substantially different from the piece's Off-Broadway world premiere, which received mixed reviews. Furman told The New York Times that Taub has revised the musical heavily, changing songs and reducing the running time following audience and critical feedback.
