The origin of the term is unknown, though some explanations, that the colour was a response to limelight � early stage lighting, have been suggested. Green is also thought to be a calming and soothing colour.
The archaic slang for the stage is "the green." Hence, the room that's just off the stage may have been designated the "green room."
Many varying theories, no definite answer though
One theory is that the green room was commonly used to store stage shrubbery and grass and was therefore a nice soothing place for a Shakespearean actor to adjust his dress and check his wig before heading out to woo Juliet.
