Written by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, with lyrics by Fred Ebb and music by John Kander, the musical is set in Prohibition-era Chicago, and 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.”
