B’way stars are running — not walking — to see “Brittany Runs a Marathon.”
Taylor Trensch (“Dear Evan Hansen”), Giuseppe Bausilio (“Hamilton”), Jenn Colella (“Come From Away”) and Evan Todd (“Beautiful”) were hosted at Cafe Fiorello with the film’s writer/director Paul Downs Colaizzo, and then skipped to a screening at AMC Lincoln Square.
The movie is about a party girl, played by Jillian Bell, who decides to run a marathon to salvage her self- esteem and health. The movie is based on a real woman, Brittany O’Neill, a former roommate of Colaizzo, who is now married and works at NYC’s International Rescue Committee. He said the story is about a woman finding her own dignity and also a “love letter” to O’Neill.
