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?'

Bessie Ray – The Belle of New York – The Stage – Thursday 18th April 1901

WORCESTER: Royal (Sole Lessee and Manager, Mr. William Gomersal). The Belle of New York has visited “the faithful city” before, and, judging from the reception accorded the performance of the comic opera on Monday, it will be welcome again and again, especially if presented by so capable a Co. as that of Mr. Ben Greet, under the direction of Mr. Maurice Robinson. To the part of Ichabod Bronson Mr. Arthur Ricketts brings some excellent comedy. The title role is charmingly played by Miss Beatrice Lamotte, Miss Ada Elliston is an attractive Fifi Fricot, and Miss Victoria Hunt gives a good account of Cora Angelique. Mr. Edmund Sherras is admirable as Harry Bronson. Miss Bessie Ray and Mr. Bert Monks capably sustain the parts of Blinky Bill and Mamie Clancy. The opera is well staged and dressed, and runs with remarkable smoothness.

Dundee: Another specially clever impersonation is that of Miss Bessie Ray, who appears as Mamie Clancy, the Pell Street girl.

She dances divinely, and is conspicuous for the energy and tact she displays all the time she is on stage.
