Here, we reproduce an excerpt from the book, “The Best Stage of My Life”, by actor Adrian Pang, about his experience on working at Mediacorp and how theatre has always been his first love.

Can the comma beside "book" be removed?

Thanks.

@tanguatlay,
You know what — I think you can get rid of all the commas.

@hightor,
Thanks, hightor.

Do you mean all the three commas?

(I removed the "on" from "on working at" as well)

I think it reads quickly like this and doesn't really require commas. Sometimes adding every allowable comma makes for a stilted and broken quality in the sentence

@tanguatlay,
Grammarly didn't have a problem with it.

Since an excerpt is technically a reproduction, I changed "reproduce" to "produce."
