The ritual of dating has come a long way from the “have I got a girl/guy for you!” era of the blind date, to the point where everything you need to know about a romantic prospect is (theoretically) available on your I-phone. But for Celine (Kate Margalite), an attractive 30-something Daddy’s girl searching for true – and extreme vetted – love, that’s not good enough, as we see in “Empaths”, the consistently funny new comedy now making its world premiere at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater.
