In March of 1924 a fledgling reporter for the Chicago Tribune was given the assignment to cover the trial of a cabaret singer charged with murdering her husband. A month later the reporter, Maurine Watkins, was assigned another case involving another pretty young killer. Watkins peppered her articles with salacious details and great wit, aggrandizing the stories of the female perpetrators. Readers ate up her coverage and soon the savvy reporter created a satirical comedy, Chicago, based on her articles. This production of Maurine Watkins’s original script follows the exploits of several female killers and their notorious defense attorney Billy Flynn.
