Dresses in The Orchid – Daily Telegraph & Courier (London) – Tuesday 27th October 1903

Dresses in “The Orchid”

 Miss Gabrielle Ray wears in the first act a grey sun pleated dress, finished with a wide ruche round the hem, and a deep early Victorian cape of Trish lace, almost to the waist. Her wide-brimmed hat is of gauged chiffon. Later she wears a charming turquoise-blue costume, in somewhat of the old style of ballet-skirt, but more graceful in that layer after layer of the ethereal yet soft fabric is edged with undulating masses of ruching. The bodice is cut low, and there are trellis sleeves of blue velvet, into which pink-fringed daisies are tied. A band of trellis and daisies falls on the skirt below the waist. The hat is basket shaped, and of daisies embedded in soft blue chiffon, closely gauged, the brim lined in front with chiffon of a paler shade. Again, Miss Ray wears a dancing dress all in red, with effective touches of black.

The Orchid – The Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser – Saturday 31st December 1904

“THE ORCHID”

 

This successful musical play, with which the new Gaiety was opened, is now in its second year, and the second edition which Mr Edwardes has now got in full swing can hardly fail to secure for it a pleasant prolongation of popularity. Among the new numbers mention should be made of an exceedingly pretty song, “On a Summer Afternoon,” given with refreshing piquancy by Miss Gertie Millar; of a charming fishing ballad, “Blanche Marie,” to which every justice is done by Miss Marie Studhohme, and of a capital song “La Promenade Anglaise,” of which not the least attractive feature is the dance which follows and which is executed with the most gracious nonchalance by Miss Gabrielle Ray. A “motor” scene, which eventually resolves itself into a “bathing” medley is a most popular new number, while cheers nightly greet a characteristically Irish ballad, “Kate O’Malley,” allotted to Mr Lionel Mackinder, and winding up with a brisk jig, wherein Miss Olive May greatly distinguishes herself. Special praise must also be accorded to the extremely dainty song, “Sweep,” which now takes the place of the “Pierrot” number in the last scene. In this Miss Gertie Millar wins for herself the unqualified favour of everyone by her amazingly graceful and fascinating method. Mr Edmund Payne, Mr Charles Brown, Mr Harry Grattan, Mr Robert Nainby, Mr James Sullivan, Miss G. Rowlands and Miss Connie Ediss, it is almost needless to add, continue to work with untiring energy for the of the piece, and deservedly meet with enthusiastic receptions nightly.
