Manual Trans Problems

We have a 2002 Mini Cooper (not an S) with a 5-speed manual trans. We were cruising at freeway speed when we first got a vibration, then harder shaking, then a "bang". I put the clutch in and coasted to the shoulder. Now if the car is in neutral and you slowly let the clutch out it moves forward. If you put it in any gear and try to let the clutch out the car won't move and the engine stalls, like it is in reverse and a forward gear. Also, with the car turned off, and in neutral, I can push the car by hand and move it, although it moves hard. Any advise???
