NEW YORK (AP) - Next year will be a big one for Broadway's "Beautiful - The Carole King Musical" - a London production is due to start and a national tour across America is planned.

Producers said Friday that a West End production of the Tony-nominated show begins previews on Feb. 10 at the Aldwych Theatre. And by next September, a U.S. tour kicks off at the Providence Performing Arts Center in Rhode Island.

Other tour stops include a 12-week engagement at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago from Dec. 1, 2015-Feb. 21, 2016, as well as stops in Los Angeles and the North Carolina cities of Durham and Charlotte. Other cities are planned.

The musical is about the songwriter behind such hits as "It's Too Late" and "You've Got a Friend."
