Gabrielle Ray

'Gabrielle Ray said, 'I am always dancing; I love it! When I don't dance, I sing. What else is there to do?'

Gabrielle Ray’s Return

Miss Gabrielle Ray is to return to the stage and will make her appearance at Daly’s Theatre in about a fortnight as Estelle, the pretty milliner in “Betty”

She retired from Mr. George Edwardes’s management and the stage at the end of 1911. Yesterday she finally made up her mind that she would like to return to the theatre.

“Going back to Daly’s Theatre” she said, “is almost like returning home after a long absence. The risk that I may be forgotten makes me nervous; but I have not forgotten the theatre, and I have not forgotten to dance.” She certainly never looked better and prettier that she did yesterday, and she danced round the room in her characteristic light-footed way as she used to do in “The Merry Widow” and “The Dollar Princess.”
