    I don't know if there is any other reason in a case like this.

    Reading about the crowd obstructed by overturned chairs and tables, I was reminded of a performance I attended at Second City in Chicago several years ago, and how I had to sit with my knees separated because I had to practically straddle the person sitting in the row in front of our table (rows of tables were on a sort of stair-stepped floor.  I'd almost like to see the room again to see if it really was as packed as I remember, and gauge what the results would have been if there had been a fire and panic in there.
