The Demon Doctor World Premiere Event
This was such a fun night. The premiere night of Demon Doctor. Inspired by 90s genre shows like Buffy, The Vampire Slayer and The X-Files, Demon Doctor is an LGBT story about a portly demonologist and a detective who believes in the beyond teaming up to confront the mysteries lurking beneath the surface...
I play Detective Mark Besim, a detective who believes in the supernatural despite what his new demonologist contact says. Season one introduces some awesome monsters, some killer death scenes, and a fun love story. Its dark comic horror at its best and I am so happy to be a part of it.

Award Winning Latinx Play Returns to the Secret Theatre for 11 More Shows- LIC Post
Eight Tales of Pedro writer Mark-Eugene Garcia and director Rodrigo Ernesto Bolaños sit down with Joe Torres on Tiempo on ABC7NY, to discuss more about the play and why more than ever, especially during these political times, we need to be sharing these types of stories.
MARK-EUGENE GARCIA--No introduction needed. Read on for Mark's thoughts on mangerie!
Why did you take up performing?
"Performing started with music and music started with HER: My elementary school crush was the first chair flute player and I learned how to play flute well enough to be second chair so I could sit next to her. Years later, she would quit band and I would quit girls. But music would lead me to musical theatre and theatre in general."
Who is your character? How are you like this character?
"In THE UNDERPANTS GODOT, I play Mark Ransom, who plays Vladimir in 'Waiting for Godot'. It’s complicated ...but it’s not. My character and I are alike in that:
We’re both actors named Mark.
We both have a lot of a lot of respect for theatre.
We both fight to elevate the visibility of queer characters.
We both agreed to do shows in our underwear.
And we both have a pretty wicked sense of humor.
How do you differ?
"We’re different in that Mark (him) [is] a lot smarter than Mark (me). I realized that when I first read the script. Preparing for the role, I had to read up on Beckett, re-read some theatre history, revisit some Shakespeare, as well as research some Queer Cinema of the 80s and 90s. He also didn’t like 'Batman Begins' and I did. That’s important."
