I can't add any information about multiple Hamlets, but I was involved last year in a production of Richard III with no Richard. (We focused on the other characters who are often ignored or even cut altogether, especially the women. Richard was just an offstage presence.)

Stephen Buhler writes:

 

In Celestino Coronada's experimental filmed *Hamlet* (1976), twins Tony Meyer and David Meyer play both Hamlet and Laertes. The production also features Quentin Crisp as Polonius and Helen Mirren as both Gertrude and Ophelia.

 

Just as a matter of curiosity, how did Mirren play both parts during the mad scenes?

Not exactly Hamlet, but Hamlet ESP, produced at the Dallas Theatre Center in 1971, splits Hamlet into three.
