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".[6]

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."[5]
