In January 1907, Clifford made her Broadway stage debut in the musical The Bell of London Town. Clifford's stage career was prolific and lasted throughout the 1910s. Some of her most notable roles were in the 1911 musical triple bill Hell, Tempations and Gaby, the 1911-1912 original musical comedy Vera Violetta, the A Winsome Widow (1912) and the 1916 A Pair of Queens.
