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 – Lady Madcap – The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News – Saturday 7th October 1905

The Prince of Wales’s Theatre.

“Lady Madcap” has signalled its success by running into a “second edition,” which was triumphantly produced on Saturday night; and eleven new numbers should be quite enough to encourage and reward a second visit by those who have pleasant memories of its earlier days. One of the most effective novelties is “On a Saturday Afternoon,” a duet followed by a dance, or rather a dance preceded by a duet, for Miss Gabrielle Ray and that wonderful little corporal Mr. George Carrol. Mr. Maurice Farkoa’s delightful share of the entertainment now includes “Sammy,” “Bedelia,” and “Mrs.’Enery ‘Awkins” in French; Miss Zena Dare has several charming new things, including a song in Guardsman’s uniform; and Miss Gabrielle Ray celebrates the Entente as a French “Little Sailor Boy.” Mr. G. P. Huntley’s business, the backbone of the “play,” has been worked up to perfection.
