Theater critic and arts reporter Jackie Demaline has been with The Cincinnati Enquirer since 1994, following seven years as entertainment editor of the Albany Times-Union in upstate New York. In 1998 the Ohio Society of Professional Journalists named her the state's top arts reporter.

Her column philosophy: I believe arts change lives and that arts matter to every community. So every Sunday my aim is to tell readers what's most significant in the arts in our community. Arts are about politics and education and suburbs and downtown development and everyday people, not just what's on more formal stages.

Her reviewing philosophy: I want to put you in the seat next to me. I want to be surprised and provoked, to think and feel. I want you to respond to my writing and I strive to be consistent so that, like me or hate me, you can use me as a guideline.
