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

Taub is reprising her Off-Broadway performance as Alice Paul, alongside Tony winner Nikki M. James (The Book of Mormon) as Ida B. Wells, Tony 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 nominee Emily Skinner (Side Show) as Alva Belmont/Phoebe Burn. All cast members—save for Skinner, McCleskey, and Blanck—were part of the Off-Broadway production. Bonino and Dandashi make their Broadway debuts in the show.

"I grew up in rural Vermont listening obsessively to Broadway cast albums on the boombox in my bedroom," says Taub in a statement. "To get to make one of my own with this miraculous cast and orchestra is beyond my wildest childhood dreams. I'm so grateful to Atlantic Records for making it possible, and can't wait to share these songs and this story with the world."

"Over the past decade, we’ve been honored to work with visionary composers to help bring their stories to life on record-breaking cast albums,” adds Atlantic Records President of A&R Pete Ganbarg. "We’ve been huge fans of Shaina’s for a while and are thrilled to be working with her and her incredible team to bring the timely story of Suffs to the world."

The ensemble includes Laila Erica Drew as Phyllis Terrell/Robin and Jaygee Macapugay (Here Lies Love) as Mollie Hay, along with Jenna Bainbridge, Dana Costello, Monica Tulia Ramirez, and Ada Westfall. Hawley Gould is the alternate for Alice Paul, with the company rounded out by swings Christine Heesun Hwang, Chessa Metz, Kirsten Scott, Housson Semon, and D'Kaylah Unique Whitley.

Director Leigh Silverman again directs the Broadway production, which features a largely new creative team. Aside from returning music supervisor and music director Andrea Grody, the Broadway creative team includes 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 the general manager.
