Radical European city navigation technique:

a) When you hear march music, follow to its source - a military parade engaging in a march or changing of the guard ceremony.

b) Follow them until they stop moving. Eventually, the music ends and they disperse or are dismissed.

c) Go to the nearest supermarket and buy candy.

d) Then head in the direction the parade was last moving before it ended.
You _will_ end up where you wanted to be.

Spooky, but it works.

Synopsis: Parade is the true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish man who was wrongly convicted of the murder of thirteen-year old Mary Phagan. The musical covers not only the trial, but also dramatizes the love story between Leo and his wife Lucille. The show is basically an historical re-telling of the story, but it also subtly examines class and race relations, prejudice, and the South. In the end, Leo's sentence is commuted from the death sentence to life imprisonment, but on the two year anniversary of the little girls death, a mob takes him from his cell and lynches him.
