I saw this come up in a thread re: the Aladdin show when Al asks the audience what he should do with the lamp, and there seemed to be a lot of people against the idea of breaking the fourth wall.
I personally like it, if it fits in the context of the scene, and the concept of the show. For Aladdin, the fourth wall is broken constantly with all of the takes to the audience. I consider that breaking the fourth wall cause you are directly bringing the audience into the world of the play! Same as the cavalcade coming into the house for Prince Ali.
So What do you think? Breaking Fourth Wall good or bad?
