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?'

London loves its old favourites. Thus the return of Miss Gabrielle Ray to Daly’s has proved a great success, and Miss Lily Elsie is filling His Majesty’s with “Mavourneen.” As a matter of fact, Miss Ray and Miss Elsie have actually improved as artists during their retirement. On Sunday afternoon Miss Elsie will preside at the O.P. lunch at the Cecil an innovation which is due to the war.

“Gabrielle”

I hear that there is to be another interesting return to the stage. This time it is Miss Gabrielle Ray. She is to take up the part of Estelle in “Betty” in about a fortnight’s tome, as Miss Mable Sealby is leaving to rehearse for the new play at the Adelphi. Not so very long ago Miss Ray was the picture postcard favourite. One form alone sold over 10,000,000 of them. She made her name in “The Belle of New York” when it was on tour in 1899, and she reached the zenith of her popularity in the scene at Maxim’s of “The Merry Widow.”
