BRAND NEW Clutch Chatter - 2000 GT

Hey guys,
I just drove home from the shop that installed a brand new clutch on my 2000 GT. It is a LUK Clutch so it doesn't have any performance upgrades or anything like that. They did have to send off my flywheel for resurfacing, too.
About 10 miles down the road I noticed a small vibration and noise. While driving (not idling) if I barely press on the clutch pedal I get this hard vibration and loud chatter noise. It got worse the whole way home. I have to be at work in 30 minutes so I wasn't able to take it straight back to them.
Is this normal by any means? Possibly a break in issue? The mechanic was very confident when saying "there's no need to break in these clutches, just don't do a burnout out of the parking lot and you will be fine."
What do you guys think is going on?

**UPDATE**
Now when the clutch grabs in any gear there is an unbearable vibration throughout the entire car. I'm actually worried it may die on me.

Yeah, that definitely is not good. Sounds like something is very off balance, but because it doesn't happen in idle it makes me thing it has something to do with the clutch, possibly a bad pressure plate? Call the shop, complaint, and have them pay for towing back to fix it for free. Worst case you'll break the crankshaft bearings and the transmission, depends on how bad it is.
