Of Rose's performance in the theatrical production of The Gay '90s Musical in 1997, Variety wrote the play "features the beautifully harmonized voices of Margot Rose, [Bill] Ledesma and [Bill] Hutton as a trio of gay friends who nurture and support each other throughout their lives".
Of her performance in the 1996 theatrical production Sordid Lives Variety wrote "Also lending solid support are ... and Margot Rose as the well-worn Betsy Mae, whose gentle musical offerings of such ballads as 'Will the Circle Be Unbroken,' 'The Water Is Wide' and an original title song punctuate the onstage doings."
