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?'

The Merry Widow – The Morning Post – Thursday 21st January 1909

Daly’s Theatre

“The Merry Widow” is still drawing crowds to Daly’s, where it is well on in its second year. From time to time Mr. George Edwardes adds to its attractions, the latest novelty being a dance introduced into the last act, the scene of which is Maxim’s Restaurant, and danced by Mr. Georgie Mahrer, who has made a reputation at Maxim’s, and Miss Gabrielle Ray. The dance is a sort of waltz with variations, some of them curious rather than graceful. For the most part the embrace is very close, similar to the “hold” in the Apache dance, in which the man almost presses his face against the girl’s, but at other times the parties are at arm’s length, and there is one spell during which they are back to back. The pace varies greatly and with much suddenness. Mr. Mahrer is an accomplished dancer, Miss Gabrielle Ray’s abilities are well known, and the dance is very popular. Last night there was a double encore, and had the dancers seen fit to still further prolong their little entertainment the audience would assuredly have raised no objection.
