We discuss whether shows that fake a ‘spontaneous’ breaking of the fourth wall are dishonest,
Tyson talks about the time he saw a dancer fall into the orchestra pit

It’s A Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman,
Patti in Evita,
Liza and Chita in The Rink, and
Toni Collette and Mandy Patinkin in LaChiusa’s The Wild Party.
