Pig Iron Theatre Company presents its alternative production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, or What You Will, through December 22 at the new FringeArts theater. The company brings its highly physical style of performance and a live Balkan band to this tale of drunkards, noblemen, jesters and religious zealots.

Lantern Theatre Company presents A Child’s Christmas in Wales, an original adaptation of the Dylan Thomas poem staged by Philadelphia performance artist, puppet maker, and set designer Sebastienne Mundheim in collaboration with Charles McMahon and featuring four well known Philadelphia actors. Through January 5.

The Fabric Workshop and Museum opens a new exhibition Friday showcasing the work of current artist-in-residence Sarah Sze.  Sze’s large, site-specific installation works deal with the nature of time and memory.  Through April 6.

3rd Street Gallery presents Jean Burdick and Keith Sharp through December 29. Burdick’s Shared Origins fuses drawing and silkscreen printing techniques and Sharp’s Seeing Through uses photographic techniques to make opaque objects seem transparent.

And let’s not forget…
