In Memorandum: Clive Barnes

New York drama and dance critic Clive Barnes passed away this morning from cancer. Barnes served as a critic for the New York Post starting in 1978, at the New York Times from 1965-1977, and is the author of several books on American Theatre.

"My ideal criticism is to write a notice about a play I didn't like, and yet send people to the theatre to see it."

Barnes was 81.
