Subject:        Romeo

A colleague asks for informaiton about a reference a secondary student
found stating that:

"At one point, two versions of "Romeo and Juliet", one with a tragic
ending and one with a happy ending, played on alternate nights and the
audience would choose whichever ending suited their mood at the time."

I can only assume that the Cibber effect was in full bloom... Can anyone
offer any specific help???

I'm much obliged.

Cheers,
