3. Delacorte Theatre Sculptures, Central Park


The Delacorte Theatre is home to Joseph Papp’s Shakespeare in the Park. Just outside of the Delacorte are two sculptures that memorialize Shakespeare’s connection to the theater. The bronze statues were designed by Milton Hebald and dedicated in the 1970s. The sculptures along with the theater were gifts of philanthropist George T. Delacorte. One depicts Romeo and Juliet and the other Prospero and Miranda, from The Tempest.
