This year the OSF had a little of everything, more traditional Shakespeare (Henry IV, with slightly updated costumes), experimental Shakespeare (Julius Caesar played by a woman, with the audience playing the Roman crowds), Gilbert & Sullivan, and a Pulitzer-winning play (August: Osage County). Moliere's French farce was updated to the 1960's (some loved it and some hated it). Measure for Measure was cast race- and gender-blind and set in modern times in a Latino Vienna, but preserving Shakespeare's words.
If you're open minded and want to see great acting this is the place for you. I thought I was more of a traditionalist, but this year and last I have to admit I enjoyed everything.
