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?'

Flying Colours – The Irish Independent – Monday 18th September 1916



The latest of the long succession revues, which are so popular with the London public, is “Flying Colours,” by A. da Courville and Wal Pink, with music by W. F. Peters. It was produced with a fair amount of success at the Hippodrome on Saturday night. The piece differs from most Hippodrome revues in being less noisy and less glaring, and the performers make comparatively little use of the auditorium. But while the artistes are mostly entertaining there is hardly a scene or song which is particularly humorous or clever in itself. The lady principals, including Miss Gabrielle Ray and Miss Dorothy Waring are only sparsely employed. The chief comedian is Little Tich, who appears in all sorts of guises – a bull-fighter, a Spanish lady, a jockey, a music-seller, and what not, and is his droll self in them all. A notable episode is Capt. Bairnsfather’s trench scene, reproducing exactly the spirit and detail of his famous drawings of scenes at the front.
