The episode features several songs by Broadway composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim.[4] A number of these were filmed on location in the Walt Disney Concert Hall building, which is used for the NYADA Round Room concert hall.[3]

Six songs from the episode are being released on a six-track EP with the title Glee: The Music, Bash. These include an original song, "Colour Blind", performed by Riley; Aretha Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," also performed by Riley; and four Sondheim songs: "Broadway Baby" from Follies, performed by Michele and Criss; "No One Is Alone" from Into the Woods sung by Michele, Criss and Colfer; "Not While I'm Around" from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street sung by Criss, Michele, Riley and Chord Overstreet (although Criss performs the song as a solo in the episode); and "I'm Still Here" from Follies, performed by Colfer.[5]
