12th Night

By November 25, 2015Reviews

Pig Iron Theatre @ Abrons Arts Center, NYC and Fringe Arts, Philadelphia


New York Times

The whole production is pretty dazzling. The gung-ho actors serve up a string of surprises… to create a very skewed, very enjoyable show. Critic’s Pick.

Time Out New York

Four stars. Critic’s Pick.

Philadelphia Inquirer

As Sebastian, Charles Socarides was a bright spot. He inhabited his role and delivered exuberance when the show needed it most.

New York Theatre Review

An outstanding ensemble. All the performances are exuberantly physical. Pig Iron’s Twelfth Night captures the giddy extremes of romantic beguilement, its highs spin wildly and its lows are mournful and bottomless. They makes it look effortless. 

Neal’s Paper

Socarides is the most noticeable Sebastian I have encountered. Director Dan Rothenberg gives Sebastian weight, and Socarides makes the most of his opportunity. He comes on in full force… His alacrity at accompanying Olivia to the inner chambers of her mansion is fun to behold.


This production will warm your heart and have you rolling in the aisles with laughter… Sieh turns in a convincingly masculine Cesario, out-butched only by her boy-band-handsome twin brother Sebastian played by Charles Socarides.


Pig Iron’s Twelfth Night is perfect.
