“Chicago” is an American musical with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and libretto by Bob Fosse and Ebb himself. Set in the city of Chicago during the jazz era, the show is based on the homonymous play published in 1926 by journalist Maurine Dallas Watkins, based on the actual crimes she had covered for the Chicago Tribune. The story is a critique of the corruption of the judicial system and the concept of star criminals.
