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 Casino Girl – Dublin Evening Telegraph – Saturday 14th September 1901

The musical farce, in two acts, from the Shaftesbury Theatre, London, entitled “The Casino Girl, will be presented at the Theatre Royal on Monday evening for the first time in Dublin by Mr Ben Greet’s company. A strong cast has been engaged. Mr. Joseph Wilson, who will be remembered here as having played in the Theatre Royal pantomime “Cinderella,” scores as “J. Offenbach Gaggs.” The title role will be played by Miss Isa Bowman, who is well and favourably known in Dublin. Miss Gabrielle Ray, late the “Mamie Clancy,” of “The Belle of New York” Company, a sprightly dancer and a most charming actress, has everywhere scored with success as “Dolly Twinkle.” We are informed that it is a very bright and mirthful piece, full of good songs and pretty dances. The magnificent scenery and dresses are an exact replica of the original London production at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
