    Seoul's answer to Broadway

    'Cookin' Nanta' is a show recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad I watched it. It's a performance where a cast of just 5 people (4 chefs and their manager) play out a story using knives, pots, pans, veggies and other kitchenware to cook up a cacophony of drums, dance, a bit of acrobatics and slapstick comedy. Overall, a very entertaining 1.5 hour story without any script or dialogue that has been running since 1997 and has gone on a world tour.

    There are 2 daily performances (Mon. - Sun.) at 5 and 8 pm at the 3 theaters plus an extra show at 2 pm at the Myeongdong theater.

    As of Aug. 2011, the ticket prices are 40,000 won for balcony, 50,000 for upper orchestra and 60,000 for lower orchestra.

    Touring all over the world under the name of Cookin', Nanta has its origin in Korea.

    The show is still running in Seoul at two different theatres.

    It's kinda percussion-show about Cooking and REALLY funny.

    You don't need to speak Korean to understand the meaning.

    Just watch out that you don't seat at the aisle.... as a western guy you might be picked to go on stage....

    Shows are usually sold out, so get your tickets early. Tickets are available at 50'000 and 60'000 Won.

    'NANTA' means figuratively reckless punching as in a slugfest at a boxing match. Our 'NANTA' is a non-verbal performance of reckless rhythms that dramatize customary Korean percussion in a strikingly comedic stage show. show title as "COOKIN"

    Time : Mon - Sat : 16:00, 20:00
