The only alteration I would make (did make) is in doubling Gratiano and Brabantio, using the same logic for doubling Ghost/Claudius (HAM) and Dukes Frederick/Senior (AYL). I did eliminate characters (Clown, Musicians, Herald) in my produciton, due to a need for extreme streamlining) but I believe that it would still hold true through the rest of the casting.
