This Television Episode refers to Cats composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber
When talking about Jerry's Painting, Chris tells Leslie that he doesn't have a problem with nudity. He tells her that he has dabbled in nude art, and even took part in a nude production of 'Cats' in college.
Feeling frustrated and powerless because of her situation with Ben, Leslie finds strength in a painting Jerry contributes to a community art show, which depicts her as a bare-chested Greek goddess. The painting immediately causes a stir and there is a call to have it destroyed, which Leslie emphatically protests. Tom wants the painting destroyed as it depicts him as a pot-bellied cherub. Ben gets sick of living in a hotel a moves in with April and Andy, only to discover that they don't know how to take care of themselves and he resolves to teach them how to be adults. Leslie eventually swaps the painting with a duplicate Jerry makes, depicting Tom as the Greek god, allowing Leslie to keep the empowering portrait.
