'A talented troupe of Korean performers treats Cookin' audience to a taste of Culinary lunacy-sliced and diced to percussive perfection.'
- Playbill, Minetta Lane Theatre-
NANTA premiered in 1997 and is the longest running show in Korean history. This electrifying 100-min show, on the comically-charged efforts of four cooks who are tasked with preparing an entire wedding banquet in just one hour, is one of Korea's most popular musicals of all time.
Since its first performance, this world famous non-verbal performance made a record of 20% above full capacity at the theatre driving the largest number of audience in Korean history.
Figuratively meaning 'reckless punching,' NANTA is a comedy set in a restaurant kitchen, where 4 chefs rush around like headless chickens preparing dishes for a wedding banquet. In the midst of the chaos, these playful, flamboyant cooks use whatever they lay their hands on - kitchen untensils, knives, pots and pans, brooms - as percussion instruments to create Samulnori - a genre of traditional percussion music in Korea characterized by strong, accented rhythms, vibrant body movements and an energetic spirit.
The main NANTA Theater is located in Myeongdong Shopping District, inside the UNESCO Building on the 3rd floor. The theater is easy to find. Just locate the NOON Square Mall. It is a landmark building in Myeongdong and NANTA is in the UNESCO Building right next to it. Closest subway station is Myeongdong Station exit 6.
If you click the map you will find the addresses for 3 different theaters. They all show the NANTA non verbal performance show. Choose you preferred location. The Hongdae Theater just opened and will be convenient for those staying near Hongik University District! You can also see the directions to this new theater if you click the map. Of all three theaters, we recommend the Myeongdong and Hongdae theaters, as you can go shopping and sightseeing easily before or after the show!
