The door that performers and crew use in a theater. Usually located at the back or the side of the building. Part of the theatre tradition is that to see the actors or technicians in the lobby (if they entered or exited through the front door) "breaks the spell" of the show and ruins the illusion.
In tv shows and movies, you see autograph hounds or gangsters waiting for the star to exit the theatre after a show.
