Gabrielle Ray – Leslie Barker – The East Kent Times and Mail – Wednesday 7th July 1920

MARGATE HIPPODROME.

 

A packed house the first crowded audience since the spell of fine weather came in – gave a rousing welcome to Miss Gabrielle Ray, on Monday night. This famous musical-comedy star is appearing this week in dainty and artistic scenes, assisted by Leslie Barker and a company of delightful children. Her numbers are an unqualified success. In the programme are some other turns of marked excellence. Hurman, the hoop and club juggler, gives a good show; Tina Paynola, a clever lady mimic of instruments, animals, and particularly of a child and tiny baby, was vociferously applauded; Elsie Gregory displays versatility as a pianist, violinist, singer and dancer, and evoked great enthusiasm. Another particularly taking number is Harry Shirley, supported by May Ransoms in a cameo sketch “Eight c’clock,” and a meritorious performance is presented by Avis and Sails, a vocal camouflaged duo, in which the man takes the part of the woman and the woman sings like a man with bewildering rapidity. Other items are Fagan, the card manipulator, and The Sisters Weston, comedy cyclists. Next week: “Three Wise Fools.”

Gabrielle Ray – Leslie Barker – The Birkenhead News – Wednesday 14th April 1920

 

Liverpool Royal Hippodrome.

 

A decidedly fine programme is being submitted at the Liverpool Hippodrome, this week, in which Miss Gabrielle Ray and Oswald Williams compete for the leading honours. The former has a distinctly pretty voice and appears in some novel and dainty scenes wherein dancing is the standing feature. Both she and her partner, Leslie Barker, won well merited applause on Monday night. Mr. Oswald Williams, the famous illusionist presents a most accomplished performance. Among his best tricks are “the sack,” “the shop girl,” and a portrayal of how certain celebrities would have acted had they been conjurors. Gus Harris gives some excellent songs, including “Whether a Jew or a Gentile.” The make-up and mannerisms are the main factors of the success of Mr. G. S. Melvin, who gives ample demonstration of his versatility in a number of clever and amusing ditties. Barton and Ashley present an amusing comedy act, whilst Willie Rouse, humorist at the piano, and Laura De Vine, comedienne, also contribute to a first-rate entertainment.
