Todd Pettigrew asks

 >Does anyone have any stories of glorious
 >Shakespeare failures to share?

Kevin Quarmby does. He played the cream-faced loon in Peter O'Toole's 
1980 Macbeth.  He recalls the production in his article "A Twenty-fifth 
Anniversary Study of Rehearsal and Performance Practice in the 1980 
Royal Court Hamlet and the Old Vic Macbeth: An Actor's View", which 
appeared in volume 1 (2005) of the journal Shakespeare at pages 174-187 
(DOI 10.1080/17450910500399323)*.
