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 Tatler – 21st April 1915

A NEW PORTRAIT

 Of an Old and Popular Favourite

 

MISS GABRIELLE RAY (MRS. ERIC LODER) AND FRIEND

All playgoers will be interested in this new portrait of Mrs. Loder, who as Miss Gabrielle Ray charmed us in so many of Mr. George Edwardes’s musical comedies at the Gaiety and Daly’s theatres. Miss Ray’s dancing was not of the highest technical brilliance, but she was certainly one of the most graceful movers ever seen on our stage, and, in the lighter and simpler forms of the dance, inimitable. Her reappearance would be a delight to her many admirers.

The Palladium – The Tatler – 14th April 1920

Gabrielle Ray.

Last week in the variety theatres the chief excitement came from the welcome return of an old favourite, Gabrielle Ray,

who is as pretty as ever, and sings and dances infinitely better than she used to,

scoring a great success in a new song and dance scena at the Palladium.

Gabrielle Ray – Betty – The Tatler – Wednesday 10th November 1915

Wonderful Gertie and Graceful “Gabs.”

Only the best of the species remain – Gertie Millar at the Palace and now Gabrielle Ray in Betty at Daly’s. Gertie Millar has not cultivated the “flashing” manner of review, but she has perfected the daintier one of musical-comedy, and the contrast between, say, Teddie Gerard and herself is piquant. Gabrielle Ray has returned far more vital and “alive” than when she went away. She puts into her work a flair and a “go” which was never there in her former Gaiety days. And, if anything, she is more bewitching to look at than ever! In the dainty, rather meaningless, dancing of musical-comedy she is still unapproached. Altogether her art has taken a new lease of life, and Betty will certainly profit by her coming. Lauri de Frece, in the part left vacant by the departure of W. H. Berry to the Adelphi, is not yet as funny as his predecessor, but, given time, he will certainly prove his worth. He is one of the few comedians who, what- ever part they play, are always artists, never simply buffoons.

Gabrielle Ray – See See – The Tatler – Wednesday 25th July 1906

Miss Gabrielle Ray

 

In the Chinese comic opera, “See-See,” at the Prince of Wales’s Theatre Miss Gabrielle Ray takes the part of the little boy attendant of the heroine. She has some pretty little songs, notably “See-See’s So-Hei” and “Chinese Dolls.” Her dances are charming.

Mrs. Oscar Lewisohn and Mr. Roy Sambourne and “Queenie.”

A very excellent snapshot in one of our rare sunny intervals at Mongewell Park, Wallingford. Mrs. Oscar Lewisohn is better known to the world as Edna May,

and Mr. Roy Sambourne is a son of the famous black-and-white artist, the late Lindley Sambourne.
