Sex trafficking wasn't a major concern in the early 1980s, when Beth Jacobs was a teenager. If you were a prostitute, the thinking went, it was your choice.

Jacobs thought that too, right up until she came to, on the lot of a dark truck stop one night. She says she had asked a friendly-seeming man for a ride home that afternoon.

The Boston Citgo sign, all 3,600 square LED feet of which has served as the backdrop to Red Sox games since 1965, is now officially a "pending landmark."

Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí spent much of the 1940s in the U.S., avoiding World War II and its aftermath. He was a well-known fixture on the art scene in Monterey, Calif. — and that's where the largest collection of Dalí's work on the West Coast is now open to the public.

Stacy Sullivan On Piano Jazz

Apr 26, 2013

Vocalist Stacy Sullivan joins host Jon Weber to perform a set of standards, including a few tunes from her tribute to Peggy Lee.

The seventh of eight children, Stacy Sullivan grew up in Oklahoma. She graduated from Tulsa University, where she studied voice and performed roles in Haydn's Teresa Mass and Mozart's Requiem, among others. Since relocating to New York, Sullivan has had a busy career as a jazz and cabaret vocalist. A winner of the Backstage Bistro Award and the MAC Award for Outstanding Female New York Debut, she has appeared at venues including Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York and the Ford Theatre in Hollywood.

Sullivan's show, It's a Good Day: A Tribute to Miss Peggy Lee, explores the music and personal struggles of a legend whose career spanned more than six decades. Host Jon Weber joins Sullivan in the show, which continues to tour the U.S.

Her theatrical performances include roles in Phantom, The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Babes in Toyland. Sullivan has five albums to her credit; her latest, It's a Good Day, introduces a never-before-released song, "The Folks Back Home," written by Peggy Lee and Paul Horner.
