Ethel Shutta had as part of her appeal (as I gather from comments, I was not around to see her performance) being an older lady displaying a youthful energy and bright-eyed charm. I think the powers that be might have just thought that Stritch had a naturally jaded and sarcastic demeanor. I speculate that they might have just thought that Stritch performing it a la Shutta would not have been believable, and they decided on a new take. As it is, I don't think Stritch was very good casting in the role. The only part I think she would be good casting for would have been Carlotta, although even there she lacks a certain faded sexuality I think the role needs.
