The main cast members lived together for a few weeks before filming began. The night before filming began they all stayed in character.
Kevin Kline met Phoebe Cates during a read-through for "The Big Chill". She was reading for the role that would eventually go to Meg Tilley. Phoebe and Kevin met again a year later while performing at New York's public theater. They married in 1989.
