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 Casino Girl – The Manchester City News – Saturday 5th October 1901


Every part of the Victoria Theatre, Broughton, has been closely packed during the week by The Casino Girl. This musical production runs much on the lines of the Belle of New York. It depends almost wholly for its success which is by no means small – on a blending of the most extravagant farce with an attractive setting of bright scenery and costumes; numerous songs, several of which have become popular on street pianos and on variety stages; and a rapid whirl of dances, some of them far from being graceful or pleasant to contemplate. All the members of Mr. Ben Greet’s company, headed by Messrs. Max Copland, J. Wilson, Cecil Curtis, Misses Isa Bowman, Gabrielle Ray, and Alice Gordon, work harmoniously together, and laughter and encores make the order of the evening.
