Christophe was born in Versailles, France and received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1996. One of his specialties is post–World War 2 French theater. Among other scholarly publications, his book Le théâtre de la parole-spectacle: Jacques Audiberti, Jean Tardieu, et René de Obaldia (Summa: 2000) received positive reviews in major academic journals. Since 1987, he has been involved in many Franco-American theater projects as actor, producer and director.
