Marquerite Deval made her debut in 1884 at the Bouffes-Parisiens in "Le Chevalier Mignon". After that she performed at the Théâtre des Nouveautés and the Folies-Dramatiques. She appeared in many more revues before she returned to the Bouffes-Parisiens in 1896. In 1898 she founded the Théâtre des Mathurins in the rue des Matrins and was its manager until 1901.
