No Matthew, don't sell yourself short. I'm sure they were saying "Who's that in front of John Major?"

Also sat next to Laura Michelle Kelly at the final show of LoTR. I was just screwing up my courage to say something when she moved for the second Act. Alas...

A LOT of people were aware of him and kept looking in his direction.
So--Holmes had come to see Watson.

Well, he doesn't really count does he ? Even if I wasn't going to quibble over the "famous" tag I would say that as it is his job to be there at every first night he is not really a notable spot - I have seen him myself scuttling around on many occasions.
For the old lags here, how about which famous person you have seen most often at the theatre ? - I seem to be there with Michael Frayn more often than not (not just for his own plays/translations either).

Most famous neighbours were David Hare and Nicole Fahri at the Cherry Orchard at the Old Vic with Ewan Macgregor and wife in row behind.
Over the years I've spotted many a famous face especially at the Donmar. Going back many years to the first run of Three Days of Rain: John Malkovich, Helena Bonham Carter, Felicity Kendall, plus Dempsey and Makepeace all at the same performance.
During the American Season (inc Proof with Gwyneth Paltrow) I regulary saw David Morrisey (link to Three Days of Rain spookily) who seemed to have picked the same performances as me for the 5 plays. I noticed - I'm sure he didn't! In that run also Philip Seymour Hoffman. Of course highlight of that looking back was David Tennant on stage in Lobby Hero.
Otherwise others that standout are:
Alan Rickman - Company at Donmar
Richard Wilson - RSC Hamlet at Novello, Be Near Me at Donmar
Kate Moss, Sadie Frost, Jefferson Hack and Stella McCartney - Life and Death of An Anarchist at Donmar
There are more but my memory isn't what it once was.
