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

The songs "Razzle Dazzle" and "Mr. Cellophane", both from the musical, were performed in the first season of The Muppet Show.
