30 Years of “One Day More”, from Les Misérables

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s Les Misérables opened in the West End 30 years ago this week.  (The first musical-stage adaptation of Les Misérables, in French, had opened in Paris five years earlier.  It closed after three months.)

The show is back on Broadway, and to celebrate the anniversary, the new production has created a little treat.

From TheatreMania:

There are few more stirring anthems than Les Misérables’ “One Day More,” which powerfully unites the show’s cast at the end of the first act.  The only way this song could be more moving would be if it featured not only one show’s ensemble, but the casts of pretty much every major production of Les Mis from the last 30 years.
