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?'

AN EVER YOUTHFUL PAIR – LILIE ELSIE AND JOSEPH COYNE

 

In the galaxy of talent brought together by C. B. Cochran for the mammoth cabaret and ball at Grosvenor House, given in aid of the Actors’ Benevolent Fund, there was one incident which recalled the happiest of memories. This was when (see above) Joe Coyne greeted his waltzing partner, Lilie Elsie, for on June 8th, 1907, these two created the roles of Prince Danilo and Sonia in “The Merry Widow,” and so warmly were their efforts welcomed by the playgoing public that the run continued for 778 performances.
