'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 Orchid – Daily Telegraph & Courier (London) – Tuesday 27th October 1903

Dresses in “The Orchid”

Miss Gabrielle Ray wears in the first act a grey sun pleated dress, finished with a wide ruche round the hem, and a deep early Victorian cape of Trish lace, almost to the waist. Her wide-brimmed hat is of gauged chiffon. Later she wears a charming turquoise-blue costume, in somewhat of the old style of ballet-skirt, but more graceful in that layer after layer of the ethereal yet soft fabric is edged with undulating masses of ruching. The bodice is cut low, and there are trellis sleeves of blue velvet, into which pink-fringed daisies are tied. A band of trellis and daisies falls on the skirt below the waist. The hat is basket shaped, and of daisies embedded in soft blue chiffon, closely gauged, the brim lined in front with chiffon of a paler shade. Again, Miss Ray wears a dancing dress all in red, with effective touches of black.

Gabrielle Ray – The Casino Girl – Dublin Evening Telegraph – Saturday 14th September 1901

The musical farce, in two acts, from the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, entitled “The Casino Girl, will be presented at the Theatre Royal on Monday evening for the first time in Dublin by Mr Ben Greet’s company. A strong cast has been engaged. Mr. Joseph Wilson, who will be remembered here as having played in the Theatre Royal pantomime “Cinderella,” scores as “J. Offenbach Gaggs.” The title role will be played by Miss Isa Bowman, who is well and favourably known in Dublin. Miss Gabrielle Ray, late the “Mamie Clancy,” of “The Belle of New York” Company, a sprightly dancer and a most charming actress, has everywhere scored with success as “Dolly Twinkle.” We are informed that it is a very bright and mirthful piece, full of good songs and pretty dances. The magnificent scenery and dresses are an exact replica of the original London production at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
