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 – Red Riding Hood – Fulham Chronicle – Friday 16th January 1903

THE LYRIC – “Little Red Riling Hood” still holds her merry sway at the Lyric, where she is being visited by tremendous crowds. The old, old story of the ravenous wolf, of the wicked Baron, of Prince Sylvanus and other of her childhood acquaintances is being told with added fun and vigour; as week succeeds week the tale takes on some new phase, and becomes more laughable than ever. The putty-faced simple, simple Simon with his absurd pranks, is worth seeing; and his fond mother, as represented by Mr. Harry Buss, is overpoweringly droll. “Riding Hood” is capitally portrayed by Miss Gabrielle Ray, and Miss Gracie Whiteford adds charm to her interpretation of the Prince, her acting and singing being very fine. This week the Dagmar Troupe of acrobats give a performance, and new specialities are to be introduced next week.
