Gabrielle Ray – Robin Hood – Edinburgh Evening News – Tuesday 24th January 1922

ENTERTAINMENT

“ROBIN HOOD” AT THE KING’S.

 

If the King’s Theatre pantomime records truly, the days of Robin Hood must have been good old days indeed. It certainly is jolly to see the stage representation with its riot of gorgeous colouring, its many humorous interludes, and those fascinating people who help to chase away our cares – and our flu! Miss Gabrielle Ray, as Maid Marian, takes an honoured place. She is daintiness personified, and she and her juvenile “background” in her crinoline song make a pretty picture. The comedians too, are a lively bunch, and their sallies show that they can keep their humour abreast of topical happenings. The audience last night was very appreciative.
