If it’s quiet uptown, blame Suffs, a new musical about the arduous path to the 19th Amendment in 1920, when White women secured the right to vote in the U.S.

Even before the show officially opens on Wednesday, feminist Gloria Steinem; actors Sandra Oh, Marisa Tomei, Jonathan Groff, and Leonardo DiCaprio; and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have journeyed to the storied Public Theater in downtown Manhattan to catch it during previews.
