Shakespeare's "Macbeth" has so long been associated with misfortune that some people fear to speak the name and refer to it simply as "the Scottish play." So it should come as no surprise that the Public Theater has been forced to postpone previews of its Shakespeare in the Park production of "Macbeth" by one day, until Wednesday. The theater said that rains in recent weeks had kept the cast from rehearsals and slowed the preparation of scenery and production elements at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Starring Liev Schreiber and Jennifer Ehle, "Macbeth," when it finally opens, is to continue through July 9.
