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?'

Flying Colours – The Illustrated London News – 1916

Flying Colours - The Illustrated London News - 23rd September 1916

“Flying Colours,” at the Hippodrome.

The Hippodrome management has made a change in its chief comedian. In place of Mr. Harry Tate there comes Little Tich, figuring in a variety of disguises – now a jockey, now a toreador, now a Spanish dame – with plenty of occasions for drollery. Spain has its share in the scenario and a very beautiful background against which Mr. Bertrum Wallis sings a ballad in his best style. A dancing carnival provides an even more picturesque spectacle, though for popularity it will be run close by a most humorous and realistic trench-sketch, invented by Captain Bairnsfather and Mr. Macdonald Hastings, and produced quite in the sprit of the soldier-artist’s famous drawings. For the rest, we get an all – too – brief glimps of Miss Gabrielle ray, and some most spirited dancing from Netta Rianza.
