Chicago (musical)

Chicago is an American musical with music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and book by Ebb and Bob Fosse. Set in Prohibition-era Chicago, the musical is based on a 1926 play of the same name by reporter Maurine Dallas Watkins about actual criminals and crimes she reported on. The story is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice and the concept of the "celebrity criminal".

The famed song "Cell Block Tango" from Chicago explores the differences between a murder and a crime. However, a Hungarian convict's explanation of her crime is often lost because it's in a different language. See translation here!
