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?'

Daly’s Theatre – The Advertiser (Adelaide) – 1937


Daly's Theatre - The Advertiser (Adelaide) - Tuesday 26th August 1937

 

London loses its old theatres.

 London is always changing and Leicester Square associated, as it is with the old Empire, the Alhambra and Daly’s Theatre changes most of all. Soon we shall have to take, down Shakespeare’s statue, and substitute the effigy of some American magnate of the cinemas. The Alhambra has already been reduced to a mass of rubble, and Daly’s Theatre will be the next to come down.

They put on a new play there last week — a play announced to be “positively the last.” A very good play it is, and well acted. But what a contrast to the traditional musical comedy of the old Daly’s. All the actors are men, the play itself deals with a religious theme, and we actually had the Bishop of London in the stage box on the opening night
