A cursory web search reveals that a Leeds production of The Tempest, with Paul Scofield as Prospero, transferred to the National Theatre in 1975. Was your point that it was a poor performance by virtue of originating outside London? Or did you mean that Londoners don't talk about what they don't see?
The Leeds Tempest with Ian McKellen was part of a well-publicised rep season so it was probably seen by everyone with a particular interest. Some actors are happy to work in certain contexts and don't need to focus on enhancing their reputation.
I'm intrigued by the Kenneth Branagh rumour. As part of MIF, which commisions major new work often mixing disciplines, I speculate whether this Macbeth might be a site specific show along the lines of Michael Sheen's The Passion in Port Talbot two years ago.

And little chance of a transfer I guess, given how site specific it is.
