The good thing about going alone is even a show that is 'sold out' still often seems to have one seat going spare somewhere! I agree with what others have said, much easier just seeing what you want. Booked for Scottsboro Boys and Commitments on the same day, would never have found someone wanting to see both! And combined price came to £22 including fees - amazing!

No-one to have a pre/interval/post show drink with!
No-one to discuss the production with.
Theatre going with friends feels more like an "occasion" and can be very enjoyable.
Complete flexibility in what to see, where to sit, price to pay etc.
Almost always get single seats for "sold out" shows especially at the last minute.
You can indulge you selfish tastes (without inflicting them on others) and go to see a show multiple times should you so wish.
Talking to random strangers!
Not having the hassle of checking everyone's diaries and booking tickets and collecting monies. Because if you don't organise the trip it simply does not happen!
Not having to worry if someone else is enjoying the show especially if you have recommended it!

I always find with the more unusual shows there is often quite a few indiviiduals alone and often hardcore theatre fans so nice to have a chat.
The onlt shows I wouldnt be keen on going alone to are those like mamma mia, wwry etc where often big groups and a megamix at the end as feel a bit awkward alone! Though suits me as not my fave type of show
. Im a mid twenties guy and a few times I feel like people do wonder why Im at the theatre alone, I always manage to get upgraded which is great. Best offer so far was a completely free ticket for Sinatra at the Palladium!
