Blithe Spirit at North Cost Rep
“Rose is mischievous and adorable as Elvira, and provides a charming and frivolous foil... ”
--E.H. Reiter, Broadway World
"Elvira, played by Teagan Rose... the playful, carefree spirit, definitely brought blithe to the stage."
--Kathy Carpenter, San Diego Theater Reviews
“Teagan Rose’s Elvira, looking OH, so very lovely and very charming and very pleased with herself as the ghostly wife, but who still knows how to push her late husband’s buttons, is a force with which to be reckoned... “
--Carols Theater Reviews
“Ethereal and breathtakingly beautiful, Miss Rose is the personification of ectoplasm. Playing a pouting ingénue twit, Elvira covets adoration from her husband and consequently devises a plan to have him join her in the hereafter. ”
--Elizabeth Youngman Westphal, Village News

- Paul Myrvold's Theatre Notes
"WOW!... FEARLESS... packs an emotional wallop made even more gut-punching by the gradual way it sneaks up on you. With Teagan Rose and Connor Kelly-Eiding giving two of the year's most dazzling performances, it is a play you'll be thinking about long after the locker room fades to black."

- Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly
Center Theater Group: Block Party
"Rose is absolutely stunning as Amy, a young woman whose tough-cookie exterior serves as armor when forced to face adult challenges without adult wisdom and perspective, a physically and emotionally gut-wrenching role that Rose attacks to unforgettable effect."
-Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA
