Seven Spots On The Sun is currently in previews and will open tomorrow, Wednesday, May 10, at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (224 Waverly Place). The limited 6-week engagement runs through June 4.

In Seven Spots On The Sun, a Latin-American village has been without its doctor for 18 months. A recluse, he has refused to look at any patients since the army took his wife away during the country's civil war. Yet, when a mysterious plague ravages the countryside, he discovers he has the miraculous power to heal with the touch of his hand.

The 8-member all Latinx cast also includes Claudia Acosta (The Architecture of Becoming, Dance for a Dollar, Don Cristobal Billy Club Man), Sean Carvajal (Tell Hector I Miss Him, HBO's "Crush," Water by the Spoonful), Rey Lucas (Exit Strategy, Water by the Spoonful, Broadway: The Rainmaker), Cesar J. Rosado (Dolphins and Sharks, Middle Voice Co-Artistic Director) and Socorro Santiago (Kingdom Come, ABC's "All My Children").

The production team includes Arnulfo Maldonado (Scenic Design), Amith Chandrashaker (Lighting Design), Tei Blow (Sound Design), Fabian Aguilar (Costume Design), Rebecca Key (Production Manager), Nicole Marconi (Production Stage Manager), Genevieve Ortiz (Assistant Stage Manager) and Jack Doulin + Sharky (Casting).

After the May 10 opening, tickets are $50 (General), $25 (Artist), $15 (Student). May 11 is a pay-what-you-can night. Tickets can be bought at or via phone at 212-627-2556.
