The lyric change is this: “I am ashamed the peopke are so simple” instead of “women are so simple.”

Shakespeare purists can object but the change was made to avoid the sexism of the original.

So the staging wouldn’t help.

As Paul Gemignani commented in the Q&A after the show, the Cole Porter estate didn’t oppose the lyric change because Shakespeare wrote the lyric, not Porter.
