The well-known Broadway musical Chicago is a satire on corruption in the administration of criminal justice in Chicago in 1927. A “celebrity criminal”, Roxie Hart,  based on a real, accused murderess who was acquitted, thanks to the “fancy footwork” of corrupt lawyer Billy Flynn. Roxie's competition while in jail awaiting trial is Velma Kelly, a vaudevillian who murdered both her husband and her sister when she found them in bed together. Roxie and Velma compete for Billy's attention, love, and brilliant, though somewhat dubious “methods” as a defence lawyer.
