Elizabeth Stanley currently heats up the microphone in Million Dollar Quartet with her renditions of "Fever" and "I Hear You Knockin" as Dyanne, lady friend of Elvis Presley in the musical. The actress herself has a personal history with the King's music.

The subject of Playbill.com's latest Cue & A, the sultry Stanley reveals how she got her Equity card:

I got my card doing summer stock at Theatre by the Sea in Rhode Island. I played Ariel opposite Matt Cavenaugh in Footloose. In that same contract, I was the swing for Smokey Joe’s Café (I even went on for the BJ track and got to sing "Hound Dog," which is what I sang in my audition for Million Dollar Quartet!!)

The Camp Point, IL, native also talks of Xanadu, Katherine Heigl, her turn on "Fringe," Evita aspirations and more.
