Pro’s:- Can’t hear the mix if the act are bad. Can’t hear the audience complaining that the act are bad. You don’t get woken up by feedback as much. You can drink as much coffee as you little and go for a smoke and no one will know etc etc

Con’s:- See above

Seriously though if they install a really good monitor system for you and set it up so it sounds like the room then you could do it. Why is a better question; is it sight lines or do they not want to lose seats they could sell. If they go through with this make sure they buy you an IEM with decent buds & an iPad so you can sit in a spare seat and mix the show!

Just remember kids no matter how good your mixing is you can’t polish a turd…
