Christine Ebersole, the two-time Tony-winning actor most recently on Broadway in War Paint, will make a guest appearance on the January 14 episode of CBS' Madam Secretary.

Ebersole will again step into the role of Lydia Dalton, the President’s wife, in an episode entitled "Sound and Fury." In the upcoming episode, President Dalton (Keith Carradine) hears about a sonic attack at the U.S. Embassy in Bulgaria, and he thinks Russia is to blame and uncharacteristically threatens them with military force, leaving his cabinet concerned about his mental status.

The Broadway veteran cast—led by Téa Leoni—includes Sara Ramirez, Željko Ivanek, Sebastian Arcelus, and Patina Miller.

Ebersole has been a special guest performer on Playbill’s Broadway on the High Seas cruises. Tickets are now on sale for the Broadway on the High Seas June-July 2019 Odyssey Through the Greek Isles, with a lineup of top Broadway stars to be announced. Call Judy Perl Worldwide for tickets at (844) 561-3625 and visit for booking and information.
