THEATER | 'More Than Just A Night' 

Rochester musician Jake Bellissimo's new musical, "More Than Just A Night," follows the story of a young songwriter as she finds herself living in a foreign city after graduating from college. Through her experiences, the musician, played by Eastman graduate Cassidy Thompson, comes face to face with matters of identity, queerness, and mental illness and begins to write an album that becomes the soundtrack to the show. "More Than Just A Night" remarks on the touchstone question many artists end up asking, "What is the difference between happiness and fulfillment?" Thompson is joined in her performance by instrumentalists Jesslyn Gunawan (piano) and Raina Arnett (violin).

"More Than Just A Night" premieres Wednesday, May 2, at Downstairs Cabaret, 20 Windsor Street. 9 p.m. $20 general; $10 students. 325-4370;
