Don't sing the scene

Sing the song and play the scene

In opera, there is story progression during the songs, but in most musicals, time stands still while you're singing and the other characters can't hear you. Don't hold sang conversations and don't create problems while singing. At most, make a big, important decision with your song (like solving a dilemma).
