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 Daily Mirror – Monday 15th January 1906

“THE LITTLE CHERUB.”

Many Good Turns in the New Piece at the Prince of Wales’s.

 

If the best things had been taken out of “The Little Cherub” and given as a variety entertainment on Saturday evening, the audience would have been even better pleased than they were.

Miss Evie Greene’s song, “I’ve Had Experience,” will soon be whistled everywhere. Mr. Farkoa’s ditties are as sweetly sentimental and as skilfully sung as anyone could desire. Miss Gabrielle Ray’s Cupid dance is very pretty. Mr. Carroll and Miss Clare do a sort of double-shuffle, which is immensely taking. Mr. Berry’s topical song went down well.

In fact, “if it wasn’t for the pieces in between,” the new musical comedy would be a continual feast of melody. Mr. Ivan Caryll, as composer, has done his share very well indeed, but Mr. Owen Hall’s book is utterly feeble, and not funny at all. It gives those excellent comedians, Mr. Fred Kaye and Mr. Lennox Pawle, scarcely any chance.
