Subject: Doubling Roles
In the discussion about doubling, I don't think anyone has mentioned T.
J. King, *Casting Shakespeare's Plays* (Cambridge UP, 1992). King
compiled doubling charts for all of Shakespeare's plays and for
twenty-five others that have extant "plots" or "playbooks." He notes
that "leading actors who play principal roles sometimes also play two or
more minor parts" (p. 48).
