Outrageous Misfits


Lights! Camera! Outrageous!

Craig Russell, an entertainer known for his outrageous flair as a female impressionist, was a star on the international stage and on screen. Lori Russell Eadie, a shy theatre lover, was his number one fan and, eventually, his wife.

Together, they were fun, fabulous, and eschewed convention. But behind the curtains of the stages where they thrived, Craig and Lori struggled with the effects of mental health issues, drug addiction, sexual assault, and abuse.

Through nearly one hundred interviews and extensive research, Outrageous Misfits reveals the legacy of Canada’s first drag superstar and his biggest fan.
