I would have thought the reasons for the changes are obvious.

1. Analysis is much less common today than it was in the 1970s. Lots of people have shrinks but few are going over to an analyst 3 times a week to lay on a couch.

2. People know that Uncle Tom's Cabin exists and its historical importance. But few today know the plot details. Eliza on the ice becomes an obscure reference that makes people think of My Fair Lady or so some new trendy cocktail.

There are still a lot of lyrics that tie the show to the 70s, but there are also many attempts to update.
