Cavanagh starring in 'Jubilee'

Megan Cavanagh, the actress whose career was launched with “A League of Their Own” and “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” is now starring in 42nd Street Moon’s “Jubilee” through Sunday in The City. She was recently named by the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation as one of 10 Amazing Gay Women in Showbiz.</p>

Tell me about “Jubilee.” “Jubilee” is a 1935 Moss Hart and Cole Porter musical, and it’s a romp, and it’s fun, and I’m extremely proud to be part of it.

GLAAD recently named you one of the 10 most powerful lesbians in Hollywood — how did that feel? It wasn’t powerful, it was amazing, which is very different. It was really an honor … and I feel there’s a sense of responsibility that comes with it, and I’m taking it to heart, that responsibility.

Any big projects in the near future? My partner and I are working on a project, and I’m reticent to talk about it because we’re still formulating it. But my partner is doing a documentary about my son, called “Brendan’s Room.” His dad and his stepmom and his two little sisters live next door to us, and his room connects to both apartments.

Wow! What a unique setup. And it works for everybody? You know, issues we have we definitely work out, but it’s pretty issue-free, minus the regular teenage stuff that goes on in any household. We’re “aunties” to his little sisters, and we see the little girls every day. It’s just a really lovely setup, and it’s great for my son.
