Romeo And Juliet: C81
Milton Hebald 1917- • USA
Gift of publisher and philanthropist George Delacorte (1893-1991)
Located outside of the Delacorte Theater
at the edge of the Great Lawn
in Central Park is a bronze statue depicting the two lovers from Shakespeare’s play“Romeo & Juliet” published in 1597.
Entwined in an embrace, Romeo caresses Juliet as they profess their love for each other. Since most of the plays performed at the Delacorte Theater
are Shakespeare’s plays, it is suiting for this statue to find its home here.
