Anyone who doesn’t think this event sounds like great fun had better have their musical inclinations examined. Jeffry Denman (here on his Passion night off) hosts a passel of ukulele advocates running down the history of the lovable instrument by playing ditties which which it may or may not be associated. Among the strummers are Marc Kudisch (back from appearing as the Claudius to Paul Giamatti’s Hamlet), the marvelous Nancy Anderson, the terrific Michael Cerveris, and the bold Howard McGillin. Missing, of course: the late Ukulele Ike, also known as Cliff Edwards.
