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 – The Little Cherub – The Manchester Evening News – Monday 15th January 1906

A New Musical Play.

Elaborately produced, with the excellent taste and beauty of costume which characterise all Mr. George Edwardes’s productions, the new musical play, “The Little Cherub,” from the pen of that prolific writer, “Mr. Owen Hall,” enjoyed a most successful premiere at the Princes of Wales’s Theatre on Saturday night. The story deals with a sanctimonious peer, who is a most bitter opponent of the theatre and everything connected with it until he makes the acquaintance of a charming little actress. He then throws off his “once guid” character, and gives a grand supper to the whole theatrical company at an hotel where his own four daughters-happen at the same time to be rehearsing an amateur play entitled “The Little Cherub.” There are other complications, but the happy ending arrives with the actress accepting the peer’s proposal of marriage. The principals, Miss Evie Greene, Miss Zena Dare, Miss Gabrielle Ray, Mr. Maurice, Farkoa, Mr. Fred Kaye, and Mr. Lennox Pawle were all very good, and the music of Mr. Iran Caryll and the lyrics of Mr. Adrian Ross worthily sustain the reputations of than well-knows’ composers.
