NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities are questioning a man in connection with a break-in at the New York City theater where David Letterman tapes his show.

Police responded to a 911 call of a burglary at the historic Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway around 7 a.m. Sunday.

The vandal pried open a metal bar on the eight-panel glass doors at the entrance to the midtown Manhattan theater. The glass on four of the panels was then smashed, and stanchions attached to ropes overturned inside the lobby.

No arrests have yet been made. It was unclear how extensive the damage was.

The famous entertainment venue was home to the “Ed Sullivan Show” in the 1960s. The “Late Show With David Letterman” has made its home in the theater for years.

The theater is a destination for thousands of visitors to New York who line up for hours to see the show taped.

There was no immediate comment from CBS, which produces Letterman’s show.
