FOLSOM — Stacy Sullivan’s “A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee,” is a journey through the musical legacy of Peggy Lee, beginning with her rise from a tragic childhood on the plains of North Dakota to becoming one of the most successful female singer/songwriters in history.
The classic songs, intricate rhythms and exquisite arrangements that defined her career are elegantly portrayed in this loving homage, created with seasoned jazz master Jon Weber, and presented in the intimacy of Stage Two, the City Studio Theater.
Sullivan, winner of the 2008 Backstage Bistro Award for outstanding vocalist and 2002 MAC Award for outstanding female vocalist, has played cabaret rooms across the country, from “Jazz at Lincoln Center” and the legendary Oak Room at the Algonquin in New York to the Ford Theatre and famed Feinstein’s at the Cinegrill in Hollywood.
She has recorded five albums for the LML Music label, including her latest, “It’s a Good Day” featuring Jon Weber, Steve Doyle and Bucky Pizzarelli.
Sullivan’s fourth CD, “It’s a Small Town” was nominated for the 2009 MAC Award for album of the year.
Her theatrical performances include “Look Back in Anger” at the Rose Theatre in Venice, Christine in the Los Angeles premiere of “Phantom,” Rosabud in the West Coast Premiere of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” with Karen Morrow and George Rose, and Toby Bluth’s “Babes in Toyland” with Robert Morse at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium and the Orange County Performing Arts Center.
Live performances include eight Cabaret Conventions in New York and San Francisco, the Pasadena Pops Orchestra with John Raitt, and Knoxville Symphony with K.T. Sullivan.
In May, she made her debut at the 92nd Street Y in its “Lyrics and Lyricists” series with Andrea Marcovicci.
The seventh of eight children, Sullivan grew up performing family concerts in Oklahoma with her gifted siblings and mother, Elizabeth Sullivan.
Graduating cum laude with her degree in music from Tulsa University, Sullivan was fortunate to study with famed voice teacher, Laven Sowell.
While her film and television credits consist mostly of small movies, soap operas, guest spots and commercials, Sullivan was thrilled to create the role of Sissel Jorgensen on the award-winning television series, “Christy,” with Tyne Daly and Kellie Martin.
Sullivan’s “A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee” will perform in Three Stages, 10 College Parkway in Folsom, on Friday, April 5 at 8 p.m.; Saturday, April 6 at 2 and 8 p.m.; and Sunday, April 7 at 2 p.m.
