Green Rooms

Friday, October 20, 2023


In the wonderful world of show business, the activities of performers backstage are usually unknown to audiences, but the green room is one place that arouses my curiosity a little bit. 

The green room is a room in a theater or studio in which performers can relax when they are not performing. It is sort of a combination waiting area and lounge. It’s different from a dressing room, where performers change clothes and prepare their make-up, because a green room provides a space for entertainers to mentally prepare and relax before or after a show. 

Even though it is called a green room, it does not have to be green. In the past, green rooms were actually painted green and also had soft lighting to create a calm ambience, but they are not like that anymore.

I believe it’s still called a green room out of respect for theatrical and show business traditions of the past, and I like that.
