Matt Henerson is correct.  The line that got the huge laugh in the
Ashland production of "Macbeth" was Lady Macbeth's "You have displaced
the mirth" in the Banquo scene.

Matt stated that this line brought the house down in several "Macbeth"
productions.  I've seen the play a number of times, and this is the
first time I've seen that line get a big laugh.

I've always thought Lady Macbeth's funniest line is "What?  In our
house?" right after she's told Duncan has been killed.  But I've never
seen that line get a laugh.
