Nanta is really a must see show while in Korea. We've seen it three times and it's equally fun each time. It's non verbal so everyone can easily understand the humor. Now NANTA Theater in Myeongdong offers 11AM shows on Saturdays! AND they have 2pm shows on weekdays from July 11 to August 10(only for their Myeongdong theater) If you are lucky, you are able to purchase tickets at great discounts (up to 50%) on certain dates from their website. Here's a longer description of the show and background: You won’t be able to take your eyes off this cooking frenzy! The stage, filled with comical errors, captivates the audience, already bent over double from laughter! There’s only one hour left, and all dishes have to be prepared by 6 p.m.! Welcoming all with a warm invitation and sweeping across the world with inspiration for the last 18 years, the story of Nanta continues until everyone has tasted its delight! What is Nanta? As the first non-verbal performance in Korea, Nanta is a comic sketch of things that happen in the kitchen, performed through Samulnori, Korean traditional percussion quartet melodies. It’s a powerful performance for all ages and gender, melting the stress away with knives, cutting boards and kitchen utensils transforming into fabulous musical instruments. It received rave reviews at its premier in October 1997, and since then has raised an all-time highest number of audiences in the history of performances in Korea through continuous improvements. After gaining much popularity through performances in England, Germany, Austria, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, the Netherlands, Australia and other countries world-wide, Nanta successfully established itself on New York’s Broadway. Performed throughout the year in its exclusive theater in Seoul, Nanta fixed a goal of performing for 10 years, a goal that is unprecedented in Korea. It has also been firmly placed in the tourist route as one of Top 10 things-to-do for foreign visitors to Korea.
