Clive Alexander Barnes CBE (13 May 1927 – 19 November 2008) was an English writer and critic. From 1965 to 1977 he was the dance and theater critic for the New York Times, the most powerful position he had held, since its theater critics' reviews historically have had great influence on the success or failure of Broadway productions.Born in Lambeth, London, Barnes was educated at Emanuel School, and St Catherine's College, Oxford. He was the dance and drama critic at the New York Post since 1978, and senior consulting editor at Dance Magazine, where he wrote a monthly column, "Attitudes". Late in life, he also contributed regularly to the British journal "Dance Now". He also continued to edit and write for British newspapers such as The Times and the Daily Express, and the weekly Spectator magazine.Barnes authored numerous books related to theater and the performing arts, particularly dance. These include four volumes of 50 Best Plays of the American Theatre, nine series of Best American Plays (with John Gassner), American Ballet Theatre: A 25 Year Retrospective (with Elizabeth Kaye), Masters of Movement: Portraits of America's Great Choreographers (with Rose Eichenbaum), Ballet in Britain Since the War, New York Times Directory of the Theater, Ballet Here and Now, Dance Scene USA, Inside American Ballet Theatre, as well as biographies of Tennessee Williams and Rudolf Nureyev.Regarding television, Barnes said, "It is the first truly democratic culture, the first culture available to everyone and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want" (New York Times, December 30, 1969).He is also widely believed to have said this about his profession: "A critic is someone who rides in after the battle and shoots the wounded."

#Quote
1[on the late folksinger Harry Chapin] I first met him after I had panned his one and only Broadway show. He rang me up and asked me out to lunch. He even picked up the check. Seeing him occasionally elsewhere only reinforced this impression of a human being devoted to the world rather than to himself.
2[reviewing a 1969 revival of 'Of Thee I Sing'] The Gershwins may still be out on their own, ahead of the field, in the American musical theater. This is an extraordinarily advanced kind of musical comedy. They were here actually straining toward proper, or more likely, improper operetta and had the courage to to use arias, ensembles - even, as unlikely as it sounds, recitatives - and the musical aspect of the show is as fresh as tomorrow.
