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 – Betty – London Evening Standard – Saturday 30th October 1915





That very charming musical comedy “Betty,” at Daly’s Theatre, was farther enlivened and brightened last night by the presence of Miss Gabrielle Ray, this being her return to the stage after an absence of several years. How much musical comedy has lost in that interval was shown by the reception given to her, and by her bright and happy work in the part of Estelle.

Another notable newcomer to the cast is Mr. Lauri de Frece, who takes up Mr. Berry’s mantel in the part of Jotte, maker of modes. Mr. de Frece’s methods are quite different, but he is none the lees an excellent comedian, and a decided success. Both the newcomers bring some very good songs with them, and Miss Winifred Barnes is also provided with a new number, “Goodbye.” With all the new things put into it “Betty” seems likely to continue its success indefinitely.
