Break-In At Letterman’s Ed Sullivan Theater

CBS says the Late Show with David Letterman will tape tonight, despite a break-in at the Ed Sullivan Theater over the weekend. Cops in The Big Apple say the doors and part of the lobby were smashed at the famed theater, now home of Letterman, after a drunken, out-of-work actor went on a rampage on Sunday.

Police responded to a 911 call of a burglary on Broadway around 7 AM and arrived to find 22-year-old James Whittemore, of Manhattan, trashing the place. The theater, which opened in 1927, was once home to The Ed Sullivan Show. Letterman started taping at the theater in 1993.

The Late Show returns live on Monday after taking a week-long break. The box office to the theater reopened at 11 AM Sunday.
