Gabrielle Ray – The Palladium – The Westminster Gazette – Tuesday 14th September 1920

 

THE PALLADIUM.

 

The bill of fare provided at the Palladium this week contains that judicious blend of broad comedy, catchy music, and clever feats which goes a long way towards satisfying the varied tastes of music-hall-goers. However, broad comedy is the dominating element, as can be expected when such high priests of humour as Harry Weldon, Jack Pleasants, Ernie Lotinga, Jay Laurier, and Johnson Clark are gathered together on one bill. Each of these comedians has a distinct difference of style, and this prevents mirth from degenerating to monotony. Ernie Lotinga is seen in “Wanted, a Wife,” a burlesque which gives him ample scope for the style of humour he has made his own. He is an artist of the ludicrous. He makes absurd situations ring true in a comical way. Probably he accomplishes this by his matter-of-fact inflexion of voice. We like Togan and Geneva, who make jazzing on a wire look quite a simple business. They are above the average of this type of turn. Gabrielle Ray, whom we have seen in another sphere, has quite a charming little singing and dancing scena, in which she is assisted by Mr. Leslie Baker and a quartette of little girls. Mr. Barker scores an immense success in this act with some coon numbers. Other turns who go well include Hilda Glyder, with several typical songs; De Alma and his banjo; and La Maze Trio.

Gabrielle Ray – Peggy – Forest Hill & Sydenham Examiner – Friday 15th December 1911

“PEGGY” AT THE GAIETY THEATRE

 

The revised edition of “Peggy” at the Gaiety Theatre goes with a fine swing, and is now one of the best things of its kind in town. Of course the music plays a most important part, and when it is known that Mr. Leslie Stuart is in his happiest vein, success in this direction is assured. Mr. George Grossmith’s part of Auberon Blow is now taken by Mr. Louis Bradfield, who is admirably suited for the part. Mr. Robert Hall repeats his former successes at the Gaiety as Hon. James Bendoyle M.P, and Mr. Edmund Payne, keeps the house laughing the whole time he is on the stage. Of the ladies in the cast Miss Phyllis Dare is very fascinating and vivacious as Peggy Barrison, and sings with marked ability, while the Dorris Bartle of Miss Olive May, leaves nothing to be desired.

A word must not be omitted for Miss Connie Ediss who is very happily cast as Lady Snoop, and wins much applause for her quaint witticism, and Miss Gabrielle Ray, as Polly Polino scores heavily. Space will not permit to deal with the other parts which are all capitally played, and the scenery and setting are of a most elaborate description and well maintain the reputation of this elegant house of entertainment.
