Sir Cam of the Mac at Good People tonight.  Just before curtain up he sat in a seat in the row behind me but he left at the interval and didn't return

I know where he went: St James Theatre, Spoonfull of Sherman Cabaret. He walked passed a friend of mine there.

Stalls and Upper Circle looked full except some seats, a lot more availability in the dress circle. I expect it to be a really hot ticket after press night - it's really good!

Ralph Fiennes mentioned going to see Coriolanus at the Donmar in a recent interview, too.

Yep, friends of mine were there on the same day - Monday, Feb 3rd

It was sold out when I checked a long while back, which takes me back to my question, what is the draw here, or are we just back to normal Donmar service after an interuption.  Maybe it is my ignorance as I see Peter Gill has been writing plays since the 60s, but doesn't ring any bells with me and hasn't had anything new since I started going regularly.

WW1 anniversary?

Yes, that's standard behaviour at first nights of operas. Of course, it's still bad behaviour in the opinion of many people.
It's also happening quite often when it's not first or press night - I can only speak for German speaking countries.
I have never done it but I think it's appropriate if it's press night and the people are there who it is aimed at and they will notice that  - it is usually the designer and/or director people are booing at.
