A play in music written in 1937, THE CRADLE WILL ROCK by Marc Blitzstein is set in Steeltown, USA. Mr. Mister, the corporate magnate, has bought up (or paid off) every sector of the communitythe church, the press, the university, the artists. A prostitute arrives in Steeltown, and is immediately picked up for soliciting.
