ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - You read it right- Taco Bell gave the green light for Grammy winners Abigail Barlow and Emily Bear to make Taco Bell a musical star.

The composers made the announcement on Instagram over the weekend, saying it will be based on the beloved “Mexican pizza” which ghosted Taco Bell’s menu for nearly two years.

Not only is the Mexican Pizza having a moment on social media, but it will return to Taco Bell restaurants May 19.

Barlow and Rockford native Bear will write the music for what Taco Bell calls an “off-off-Broadway” musical.

The duo just finished writing “The Unofficial Bridgerton Musical” which won Best Musical Theatre Album at the 2022 Grammys.

“Mexican Pizza: The Musical” will star rapper and songwriter Doja Cat along with country singer Dolly Parton and written by Hannah Friedman. The musical will tell the very true story of Taco Bell fans calling for the chain to return the Mexican pizza to its menus. The musical premiers on TikTok May 26.
