I'm not aware of any productions changing those references, certainly none that I've seen. I've heard the original production changed lines slightly to keep "the year of the chicken" reference up to date, but eventually set firmly and permanently in 1975. In my opinion, it needs to stay where it is in terms of time. The era of musicals like the one they are auditioning for was ending. And the sexual and cultural mores referenced were about to change in a big way. Moving it forward in time at all (including the lyrical references you mentioned) would undermine the storytelling, in my opinion. Note: I generally don't favor making changes to scripts/lyrics, unless the old ones genuinely prevent a show from working.
