An Evening with James and Dolley Madison
Meet the Madisons.
James Madison, Jr., portrayed by Kyle Jenks, was an American statesman and Founding Father who served as the fourth President of the United States from 1809 to 1817. Dorothea "Dolley" Dandridge Payne Todd Madison, portrayed by Elissa Paulissen, was noted for her social graces, which boosted her husband’s popularity as President. In this way, she did much to define the role of the President’s spouse, known only much later by the title First Lady—a function she had sometimes performed earlier for the widowed Thomas Jefferson.
