"A talented troupe of Korean performers treats Cookin' audience to a taste of Culinary lunacy-sliced and diced to percussive perfection." - Playbill, Minetta Lane Theater - NANTA premiered in 1997 and is the longest running show in Korean history. This electrifying 90-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 theater driving the largest number of audience in Korean history.

A good mix of music, comedy and public interaction. Fun for all ages and no korean language knowlwdge required. TIP: if the show is fully booked online. try visiting the physical location. they will likely still have seats left.

A very dynamic interesting show. I found it worthwhile even I paid the rack rate as I bought on the spot. You can get cheaper fare with advance booking from some agents. I wish they'd just improve their official English site though. There is one...More

This is a great show for everyone. The characters are fun, they speak "jibberish" so no language barrier to get through, easy to follow and good humor throughout. Highly recommended and the price is very reasonable for the show provided

Recommended 10/10. I bought the tix online from Voyagin at 33% discount so the tux costs 28,000krw. Our seats were in the middle and the seats are reclining so it doesn't matter if you're seated at the back, you'll still be able to see. Unless...More

Very entertaining show with a cooking theme. Good for family event even with young kids. Beware of audience participation - lots of fun and laughter. Was good to do something different other than shopping in Myeongdong.

We've seen this show 13 years ago and it is still good with minor upgrades. It would be nice if the announcement before the show were a little longer so that I wouldn't miss any jokes. And I didn't really understand the rituals in the...More
