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.

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