Great works of literature have often begun life as stories told to kids. Alice in Wonderland comes to mind, and Peter Pan. It's hard to imagine the tales of Bedtime Stories - fantasies set in ancient Rome, the Middle Ages, the Old West and outer space - becoming classics, although they serve the goofball purposes of Adam Sandler well enough in this antic family vehicle. Directed by Adam Shankman (Hairspray), Bedtime Stories stars the man behind Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer as Skeeter Bronson, a sad-sack hotel-maintenance dude.

It is also the L.A. of David Baerwald, who, backed by his six-piece band, sang of his home town Saturday night at the Theater of Living Arts. Baerwald is a gaunt, frail man, and his lean, angular face and physique gives him the look of a hungry coyote.
