In celebration of the NHL Playoffs beginning Wednesday, April 11, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and the Stanley Cup paid a visit to the Schoenfeld Theatre and the cast of Broadway's Come From Away on Tuesday, April 10.

Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by Irene Sankoff and David Hein, Come From Away is directed by Tony winner Christopher Ashley and choreographed by Kelly Devine. Set against the backdrop of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the show follows what happens when 38 planes and 6,579 passengers are forced to land in Gander, doubling the population of "one small town on the edge of the world."
