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 Dollar Princess – The Westminster Gazette – Thursday 23rd September 1909

Many familiar names figure in the cast of “The Dollar Princess,” which is to be presented at Daly’s Theatre on Saturday evening. Miss Lily Elsie, Miss Gabrielle Ray, Mr. Joseph Coyne, and Mr. W. Berry are all established favourites with the musical comedy public, and if the work does not achieve success it will certainly be due to no deficiencies in the method of its presentation. But then such a contingency is, of course, unthinkable, for in the case of a George Edwardes production at Daly’s Theatre success may be assumed as a matter of course.

Gabrielle Ray – The Sporting Times – Saturday 4th April 1914

ROUND THE TOWN

 By SON OF THE MORNING

 

I looked in at the All Fools’ Day Revel at Covent Garden on Wednesday night, but, truth to tell, though it was very full, the proceedings were not particularly hilarious. In fact, the majority the participants wore a worried look, suggestive of unpaid rent, and obtrusive tax collectors. Well known people were scarce, but I caught a glimpse of Marie Lohr dancing energetically; Gabrielle Ray, otherwise Mrs. Eric Loder, in very natty sailor boy’s costume; Lily Elsie, who hardly left her box; while the men, Sir “Romeo” Stuart was here, there, and everywhere, and a young Guardsman of my acquaintance was very resplendent in the uniform his grandfather wore at Waterloo.
