Who is Valerie Bergere?
Valerie Bergere was a theatrical performer who made her debut as a star in The Red Mouse, a play in five acts, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in September 1903. Her career endured into the 1930s. Bergere was part of the cast of Tomorrow's Harvest, which played at the 49th Street Theatre in December 1934. Bergere came to prominence during the theatrical season of 1900 - 1901. David Belasco helped her become a more well-rounded actress.
Also a vaudeville personality, she was featured at Proctor's 5th Avenue Theatre, 27 - 31 West 28th Street at 5th Avenue in a sketch entitled The Bowery Camille, in December 1906. Versatile in any role assigned her, Bergere looked for a Japanese character to play, before she starred in the title role in His Japanese Wife. She did so on the Keith-Albee-Orpheum circuit at the personal request of Benjamin Franklin Keith. This came in 1904 following Bergere's success in Madame Butterfly, in which she acted the role of Cho-Cho San.
