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 at the King’s

A very attractive vaudeville programme is submitted this week at the King’s Theatre. Topping the bill is Miss Gabrielle Ray, the London musical star who is assisted by Mr Leslie Barker, appears in several dainty and artistic scenes. Miss Ray is especially successful in a crinoline song and dance, in which a number of quaintly dressed and carefully drilled youngsters participate. Miss Pearl Mitchell, accompanied on the piano by her sister, contributes violin selections in brilliant style. Mr Neil Melvin is a Scottish comedian much above the average. Hassan is a clever comedy magician who has some smart card tricks and produces writing on a slate without the inference of spirits. Miss Gertrude Ayton is a cultured soprano. Gilbert and French, “the foot controllers,” are expert simultaneous dancers, and Campbell and Scott, “the flying Scots,” are daring trapeze performers whose display would not be prejudiced if they discarded the kilt. Large attendances at “both” houses last night were appreciative.
