It's hard to believe Cygnet Theatre is already deep into its fifth season—and it wants to show you something cool before it launches campaign No. 6. It's currently mounting A Little Night Music at the Old Town Theatre, its new second home, designed to complement the Rolando-area space it's operated since 2003. This Stephen Sondheim staple, centering on a Swedish lawyer, his trophy wife and their tempestuous marriage, is sure a pretty little thing—it's marked by deep sienna hues, heavyhanded lights and Jeanne Reith's delicious sartorials. Some might find Sean Murray's direction a tad ponderous amid the show's lighter side, but, oh, those Ravel-inspired waltz variations! The show plays through May 11 at the Old Town Theatre, 4040 Twiggs St. in Old Town. 619-337-1525 or www.cygnettheatre.com. $24-$35.
