With his own company, the Dillingham Theatre Corp., and in partnership with A.L. Erlanger and Florenz Ziegfeld, he produced more than 200 comedies, musical comedies, operettas and vaudeville shows for the Broadway stage. He built and owned The Globe Theatre (at Broadway and 46th St.) and for many years he managed The Hippodrome, reputed to be the largest theatrical house in the world.
