Romeo and Juliet

The life-size Romeo and Juliet sculpture stands at the entrance of the Delacorte Theater, home to the annual summer productions of Shakespeare in the Park. The two iconic figures from Shakespeare’s tragedy are shown here sharing a tender moment in the instant before a kiss.

Romeo and Juliet, along with its companion piece The Tempest, was sculpted by Milton Hebald and unveiled in 1977. Both were a gift from publisher and philanthropist George T. Delacorte, who also donated several other features in the Park, including the theater which bears his name.
