The City Seen from The Boston Globe
BOSTON -- Tour guide Linda Zarrouki works for the Histrionic Academy , which conducts a tour along the Freedom Trail called 'The Path to Independence.' A bookkeeper at a pharmacy by night, Zarrouki dresses during the day in early colonial garb as 'Marie Lizzie, the town pie lady' -- a character she created for her tours. On this day, 9-year-old Michelle Musco watched as she reenacted the Boston Massacre at the Granary Burying Ground, where victims of the clash are buried along with Revolutionary War notables Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and John Hancock. 'For children, you have to be more visual,' says Zarrouki. 'You have to act it out with the gun.'
