BSC has a long history of staging works by Stephen Sondheim, the great Broadway songwriter who died in November at the age of 91. Sondheim's distinguished and singular career included such landmark shows as A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods and Passion, in addition to West Side Storyand Gypsy, for which he contributed lyrics. BSC has previously staged A Little Night Music (1998), Company(2000, 2017), Follies (2005), West Side Story (2007, 2018), Sweeney Todd (2010) and Into the Woods (2019).

In A Little Night Music, a tangle of love affairs leads to a magical weekend in the country where confusion rules, jealousies flair and sexual passions reign. Sondheim's 1973 masterpiece A Little Night Music, originally produced and directed on Broadway by Harold Prince, won six 1973 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. Suggested by the film Smiles of a Summer Night by Ingmar Bergman, Sondheim's lustrous score is written in variations of three-quarter time and features one of the songwriter's most beloved and well-known songs, "Send in the Clowns."
