Check out the full company in this preview presentation, which includes two songs new to the Broadway production.

The full company of Suffs recently met with the press to introduce the new musical ahead of its Broadway bow. Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by Shaina Taub, who will also star in the show as suffragist Alice Paul, Suffs will begin previews March 26 at the Music Box Theatre ahead of an April 18 opening.

"Great American Bitch" and "Keep Marching" are songs newly added for the Broadway premiere.

Wells, Colella as Carrie Chapman Catt, Grace McLean as President Woodrow Wilson, Cruz as Inez Milholland,  Blanck as Ruza Wenclawska, Anastacia McCleskey as Mary Church Terrell, Bonino as Lucy Burns, Brock as Dudley Malone, Dandashi as Doris Stevens, and Emily Skinner as Alva Belmont and Phoebe Burn.
