It seems that you have either twisted key or broken lock. perhaps both. So I would go to nearest locksmith and try to get them to pull key out, and then switch the lock or cut the key in lock, then drill the lock and pull it of. Pull back new lock.
Use your ignition key and stick it straight down into the slot marked shift lock, next to the shifter. That will allow you to shift it into neutral. Leave it there, remove the key from that slot and start the car. You will then be able to shift into drive, from neutral, and be on your way.
The same thing happened to my 2003 Honda Accord...took it to the dealership, and they had to replace my shift lever entirely. Something about the cable between the ignition and shift lever not being read correctly...(basically, my car is not reading that it's actually in park and therefore won't release the key)....
All you need to do is push the Shifter in harder into park and the key will come right out.. I had this problem once too.. The car just doesn't know it's in park because you didn't push it in far enough.
You can try a combination of things, one suggestion i have is to turn the wheel in any free motion it can, and turn the key, or PUSH the key into the ignition and try it that way, or there is a little push button to get the key turning.
There a several recalls that deal with this problem, it seems that due to a defective part in the ignition interlock system at times the key not be removed from the ignition, it appears the issue is corrected by installing a new lock cylinder, to read the full text of recalls on this issue go to link listed below.
