I love Shakespeare and I hope this may answer your question: In general, audiences were much rowdier and more directly involved in the show than we are today. There was no electricity for special theater lights, so both the stage and the audience were in broad daylight, allowing them to see each other and interact.

Would a modern audience and an audience in Shakespeare's time have reacted differently or the same in his play Romeo and Juliet?

The audiences would not react differently in any significant way. Romeo and Juliet are still the good guys. We feel sad, as Shakespeare's audience surely did, at their untimely deaths. The main difference likely is that Elizabethans were finely tuned to wordplay and would have caught the many dirty jokes much more quickly than modern audiences. Of course modern audiences have already read the play before they get into the theatre which helps remove this difference. And the reaction of the audience would be the same; the Elizabethans would be quicker is all.

music or a type of audio that adds to a scene can set a mood to the viewer and make them feel something you would like to portray! a sad scene, movies use types of music to a that scene so that the audience would feel sympathetic! ..the music behind a scene has a lot of power and impact in the movie.

How does the audience know when a play is moving on to a new scene?

In a French play, a new scene starts when someone enters or exits. In an English play, a scene ends when the stage is emptied and starts with someone entering an empty stage. In some modern plays, the scene starts with someone onstage already. The audience is apprised of the fact that it is a new scene because the stage lights come up. A century ago they would know because the main curtain would be drawn (few theatres apart from some amateur ones use traveller curtains nowadays).
