The HB Green Room Circle

The green room is sacred to theater artists; it is where they prepare for an entrance, touch down between scenes, and celebrate the end of a performance. The green room gives actors space to breathe and connect, to stay focused and ready for the emotions, actions, and energy of the stage.
