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?'

Lady Madcap – Pall Mall Gazette – Monday 18th September 1905

The Prince of Wales’s Theatre.

 

“Lady Madcap” has signalised its success by running into a “second edition,” which was triumphantly produced on Saturday night; and eleven new numbers should be quite enough to encourage and reward a second visit by those who have pleasant memories of its earlier days. One of the most effective novelties is “On a Saturday Afternoon,” a duet followed by a dance, or rather a dance preceded by a duet, for Miss Gabrielle Ray and that wonderful little corporal Mr. George Carrol. Mr. Maurice Faroa’s delightful share of the entertainment now includes “Sammy,” “Bedelia,” and “Mrs. ‘Enery ‘Awkins” in French; Miss Zena Dare has several charming new things, including a song in Guardsman’s uniform; and Miss Gabrielle Ray celebrates the Entente as a French “Little Sailor Boy.” Mr. G. P. Huntley’s business, the backbone of the “play,” has been worked to perfection.

A Girl on Stage – Sheffield Daily Telegraph – Monday 7th May 1906

A Girl on Stage - Sheffield Daily Telegraph - Monday 7th May 1906

Mr. George Edwardes’s Wise Move.

This contretemps had, if anything, the effect of giving a sympathetic touch to the great favour with which the new piece, based on the old, was received last night. “The Girl on the Stage,” though it is nothing to gush over, is a decided improvement in taste and refinement on its predecessor. The characters remain much the same, but the songs, a good deal of the dialogue, and much of the business are different. The vocal hit of the present performance is made by Miss Gabrielle Ray, who, in “Merry-go-Round,” by a new composer, Mr. Jerome D. Kern, simply captivates the house. Miss Zena Dare is pretty, too, especially as a Pierrot in a wonderful scene in which rose-pink Pierrettes are grouped in lavish and beautiful profusion.

The Little Cherub – Sydney Sportsman (Surry Hills, NSW) – 1906

The Little Cherub - Sydney Sportsman (Surry Hills, NSW) - Wednesday 28 February 1906

Theatrical Tit Bits

In “The Little Cherub,” four daughters of “Lord Sanctobury,” a sanctimonious old humbug, played by Fred Kaye, tell of the fun they would have if only they had been boys. They take a melon from the table and play football with it. Their “passing”  is quick enough to make the “All Blacks” tremble, while the final goal kicked by Miss Ray is electrifying.

Just the very daintiest moving picture in the world is Miss Ray as a pink Cupid shooting at little soldiers and sailors and belted earls strung in a row on an arch or roses, while tiny winged Lovers her through tiny glasses. Then she dances, and “O she dances such a way,” driving her team of amorini before her with a rope of roses, that the house thunders an encore at her. Chunk of enthusiasm from London “Sporting Times” notice of “The Little Cherub” – George Edwards’ latest production. “The Little Cherub,” at The Prince of Wales,’ is the most amusing musical play running in London. Our old friend Maurice Farkoa plays an amorous Rajah, and sings like a coffee-coloured archangel.
