As we are all just taking life one day at a time at the moment, we've chosen the epic anthem "One Day More" from Les Misérables as our #QuaranTune of the day.

The most recent Broadway revival of the immortal Schönberg-Boublil tuner played the Imperial Theatre from March 2014 through September 2016. The star-studded cast was led by Ramin Karimloo in a Tony-nominated performance as Jean Valjean, alongside the likes of Tony Award winner Nikki M. James as Éponine, Caissie Levy as Fantine, Andy Mientus as Marius, Kyle Scatliffe as Enjolras, Tony Award nominee Keala Settle as Madame Thénardier, and Tony Award nominee Will Swenson as Javert.

And if you prefer something a little more cinematic, then here's the version from Tom Hooper's 2012 film adaptation, led by Tony Award winner Hugh Jackman in an Oscar-nominated performance as Jean Valjean and featuring such Broadway alumni as Samantha Barks as Éponine, Tony Award winner Eddie Redmayne as Marius, and Aaron Tveit as Enjolras...

 

Tomorrow we'll discover, What our god in heaven has in store! One more dawn, One more day, One day more! (The Ensemble, Les Misérables)
