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 Dollar Princess – The Nottingham Guardian – Monday 26th September 1910



There was a rush for seats at Daly’s Theatre on Saturday night for the first anniversary for the “Dollar Princess” After her success with the “Merry Widow” it seemed difficult for Miss Lily Elsie to score another triumph, but she has done so, and the celebration was marked by a souvenir of signed portraits of all the chief artists presented to everyone in the house. Miss Gabrielle Ray, Miss Elizabeth Firth, Mr Joseph Coyne, Mr. Michelis, and Mr. Berry, all had an enthusiastic welcome. There were some fresh topical numbers for Mr. Berry, including a hit at Mr. Lloyd-George, and the dances and songs are now recognised favourites, but have kept their freshness all the same. Not the least reason for this is the brilliant way in which this musical is produced.
