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 – Leslie Barker – Liverpool Daily Post Tuesday 13th April 1920

ROYAL HIPPODROME

 

It is very pleasing that music hall audiences take obvious delight in watching dancing, that is something more than mere heel tapping, that means something more than unspoken banalities of comic song, and one felt grateful to Miss Gabrielle Ray and Mr. Leslie Barker for singing little, and dancing more. Their ballet scene is slight enough, but it is artistry, a happy setting. Some things may be criticised, others need not. Mr. Oswald Williams, for instance, is graduate a magician. There is sack; a woman in it; it suspended in mid-air; drops quickly: no woman. What is to say? Mr. Williams has done it. Mr. G. S. Melvin, a comedian, is clever; he the cleverest artist at the Hippodrome this week. His caricatures are audacious, almost cruel, but they are talented. His songs are not particularly remarkable; his make-up and his mannerisms are everything. If he is very careful not to exaggerate exaggeration, he ought to very well. Also there are Laurie de Vine, Willie, Rouse, Barton and Ashley, and Gus Harris, with the sentiment of whose song about Jews, all will agree.

Gabrielle Ray – Peggy – The Langport and Somerton Herald – Saturday 11th March 1911

 

OUR LONDON LETTER

It will out take long for “Peggy” to become all the rage. Is certain to be as popular as “Miss Gibbs,” and is an altogether more delightful person than “Havannah.” The new Gaiety musical play, indeed, is exactly what everyone expected it would be – quite all right. The story about Peggy doesn’t matter. It is quite a trivial part of the show. The things that really do matter are the songs and the music, the dances and the fun, the girls and their dresses. These are the elements which make for long runs at the Gaiety, and they are all in the new play. Miss Phyllis Dare as “Peggy” is more delightful than ever, Miss Gabrielle Ray runs her very close as a merry music hall artiste, Miss Olive May as the daughter of a supposed millionaire is winning all hearts. Mr. George Grossmith is splendidly ridiculous as ever as her papa, Mr. Edmund Payne as the hairdresser in a swagger hotel keeps you laughing all the time, and – well, there you are. That is “Peggy.” For the rest, there are crowds of beautiful girl, in ravishing costumes, a waltz as deliciously dreamy as anything that ever came from Vienna, and pretty songs and funny ones by the dozen. “Peggy,” in short, is just thong for the Gaiety, and is certain of quite as long a run as her very successful predecessors.
