Is there any reason not to combine Actor 1 and Actor 5? The only conflict I see is the 'Citizen of Verona,' a mob role.

I ask not only to reduce the cast by one more, but because I am considering this casting myself. A recent read bred no issues with this, but I want to ensure I'm not missing anything.

You can do it if you make some cuts and/or quick changes.
