The Collaborative Artists Ensemble presents Paula Vogel’s How I Learned to Drive beginning tonight through May 9 at the Raven Playhouse in North Hollywood. It focuses on the story of Li’l Bit and her complex emotional and sexual relationship with her uncle. While tickets are normally $20, tonight’s 8 pm performance is pay-what-you-can because it’s the day after tax day.

The Autry Museum in Griffith Park presents Home Lands: How Women Made the West. The exhibit brings together “women's history, Western history, and environmental history to show how women have been at the heart of the Western enterprise across cultures and over time.” The exhibit runs through Aug. 22. Adult admission $9.

There’s a hike in the Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve in Calabasas with a special presentation Saturn: Lord of the Rings Returns. A volunteer naturalist offers hikers an evening of star gazing with the added bonus of a great view of Saturn and its rings. This a moderate ½-mile hike. 7:30 pm. Program is free, parking is $3.

The Sacred Fools Theater presents I Made Out With Him Anyway. Evie Peck and Kirstin Eggers have developed a “multimedia cabaret-style extravaganza” that features stories, scenes and songs about their search for a good man. Their dating stories include favorites: "Online Dating Pick-Up Tutorial," "Dr. Drew Said He Was A Sex Addict" and, of course, "I F--ked A Rabbi." Two shows only: Tonight and April 23 at 11 pm. Tickets $10.
