'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 Orchid – The Tatler – Wednesday 11th November 1903

The Grand Finale in “The Orchid” at the New Gaiety Theatre.


Our photographer is to be congratulated on the splendid flashlight effect he has secured in the final scene of The Orchid at the Gaiety Theatre. We are here shown the interior of the opera house at Nice, where all the principal actors and actresses engaged in The Orchid come in front of the stage. In the centre will be noticed Miss Gertie Millar and Miss Connie Ediss; next her is Mr. Edmund Payne, then we see to the left Miss Ethel Sydney and Mr. George Grossmith, jun. Flashlight effects of this kind are not yet all one hopes to see them, but this picture is very interesting. It is a pity that one is not able to get an equally good impression of an audience, particularly the audience of a first-night performance
