Tom: One night, Laura and John Lazaro decided to put on a little play for the neighbors. It was a very cleverly concocted piece of fiction in which the husband gets killed in the first act. Like any good play, it had a happy ending: the husband didn't really die. Opening night was a smash hit, the box office took in two million and then, just when this little play looked like it was going to be a runaway hit, it closed on the second night. Somebody rewrote the ending and the husband really died. Poor Laura, she had to take the curtain call alone.
