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 – Betty – Reynolds’s Newspaper – Sunday 31st October 1915



That charming modern version of Cinderella, known “Betty,” entered on a new edition here Friday night, when, in addition to some very taking new numbers, Miss Gabrielle Ray took up the part of Estelle, with new songs and dances. It goes without saying that she was rapturously welcomed after her long absence from the stage, and she very soon proved that she is lithe, graceful, and attractive as though she had never quitted it. Mr. Lauri De Frece is now the Jotte, and plays so as to get plenty of laughter without ever overdoing it, and Mr. Tom Walls, replacing Mr. G. P. Huntley, made a well-merited hit. Miss Winifred Barnes is captivating as ever in the name part, and her new song, “Good-bye,” is very pretty and very prettily sung. The excellent work of that accomplished actor. Mr. C. M. Lowne, of Mr. Donald Calthrop, and the rest of the cast, makes “Betty” as bright and artistic an entertainment as can wish for.
