Green Room

A green room in show business lexicon in British and American English is the space in a theatre, studio or similar venue which accommodates performers not yet required on stage. The green room functions as a waiting room and lounge for performers before and after a performance, and during the show when they are not engaged onstage.

The origin of the term is often ascribed to such rooms historically being painted green, yet the modern "green room" is usually not green at all.

Famous quotes containing the words room and/or green:

    But that’s always the way; it don’t make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person’s conscience ain’t got no sense, and just goes for him anyway.... It takes up more room than all the rest of a person’s insides, and yet ain’t no good, nohow. Tom Sawyer thinks the same.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    But the lark is so brimful of gladness and love,
    The green fields below him, the blue sky above,
    That he sings, and he sings; and for ever sings he—
    ‘I love my Love, and my Love loves me!’
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
