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 – The Richmond Herald – Saturday 10th November 1906

Miss Lily Elsie has the makings of a “wastrel” of the deepest die. She would like a vote if she could bring about some nice reforms such as free cabs to and from the theatre. Again, Miss Rosin Fillipi wanted to know whether, if she had a vote, she could help the theatre more. Such frankness is quite charming. These ladies evidently have an eye to the main chance. Miss Evie Green always craves for a vote when the man calls for the income tax; and Mlle. Adeline Greene, the adored of the Oxford undergraduate, strikes the same note when she says that she thinks women ought to have the privilege of voting seeing that they pay just as the men do. These two ladies have struck the bed-rock reason upon which the demand for female suffrage is based, namely, that inasmuch as women help to pay the piper, they should have a voice in the calling of the tune. Miss Montetiore will, I am sure, hold out the hand of fellowship to the Misses Green and Genee. One more Suffragette I must quote. Miss Gabrielle Ray thinks ladies ought to vote, “It would do the men a bit of good,” she said. “The influence of this new and kind-hearted electorate would transform Parliament and brighten up England.” I wonder if it would!

Gabrielle Ray – The Girls from Kay’s – Truth – Thursday 17th September 1903

I was present the other night at the 300th performance of “The Girl from Kay’s,” and found it extremely amusing. Mr. Willie Edouin’s Hoggenheimer, the Park lane millionaire, is an admirable piece of fooling, and I do not think sufficient justice has been done to Mr. Aubrey Fitzgerald, who, in the part of the millionaire’s satellite, shows himself a most finished comedian. If you want good comedy acting you must, as I said the other day, look for it in musical comedy. There is no field for incompetence in these plays, where any single member of the company must be capable of holding the stage and amusing the audience unaided and alone. It is always pleasant to have a good word to say for a beginner, and if Miss Gabrielle Ray is a beginner, as I think she is, she should go ahead. She has great charm and vivacity, and with a delightfully unconscious brutality she inspires comparisons with our idols of twenty years ago, to whom we are still so amazingly constant, although all that we originally admired them for is no longer there.
