Producers Cancel A Planned 40-City MLK Play Tour After Allegations Against Tavis Smiley

After PBS said their internal investigation found credible evidence, "The show, 'Death of a King,' was canceled the same week that rehearsals began.

The pianist Marcus Roberts had composed accompanying music. The tour was to begin on Jan. 15, King’s birthday, in Brooklyn."
