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?'

Mr. George Edwardes’s Wise Move.

This contretemps had, if anything, the effect of giving a sympathetic touch to the great favour with which the new piece, based on the old, was received last night. “The Girl on the Stage,” though it is nothing to gush over, is a decided improvement in taste and refinement on its predecessor. The characters remain much the same, but the songs, a good deal of the dialogue, and much of the business are different. The vocal hit of the present performance is made by Miss Gabrielle Ray, who, in “Merry-go-Round,” by a new composer, Mr. Jerome D. Kern, simply captivates the house. Miss Zena Dare is pretty, too, especially as a Pierrot in a wonderful scene in which rose-pink Pierrettes are grouped in lavish and beautiful profusion.
